Kribensis Spawning #2

leave a comment »

Last night I saw a huge number of little baby kribensis fry swimming about their mother in the opening of a cave! Saweet! This is the second spawning by this pair. None survived the first attempt. Perhaps this time will be different as the parents took out a lot of the former predators.

As I was watching the herd move around, one fry ventured too far away from the group. The mother swam over, took the little guy into her mouth and transported him back to the group.  A few minutes later, I saw the father do the same thing to another fry.

It’s really quite interesting to watch the parenting behaviors of kribs! It’s nice to see the father stepping in and taking over for a bit so the mother can relax 🙂
