ryan, kribs were the first egglayers i ever bred.  i did not have to move the 
father out, and as the tank had lots of hiding places, the mother did not 
have any problems with people walking around.  she actually had dug a cave 
under a rock and that's where the eggs/fry were.  the amazing thing was also 
that it was a 29 gallon community tank with lots of predatory fish 
(rainbowfish, paradise fish, Betta pugnax) but the parents were good at 
keeping them all to the surface.  my advice is not to worry too much, they 
know what they are doing.  good luck.
