M. Altispinosus spawning

I was pleasantly surprised to find some free swimming altispinous fry
this morning, the first spawning for me of this species! I had done a
weekly water change on Saturday and had checked the pottery caves for
eggs, there were none. The fry and parents are all in the far corner of
the tank where the heater is, and where I did not clean. I don't know if
they had already spawned on Saturday, if they had then the eggs survived
a major water change (admittedly aged and preheated water).

The parents are keeping 14 tetras at bay so if there are any fry left
when I get home all the other fish are moving to another tank. Even if
there are no fry, at least I know which two fish are a pair now.
