Secret spawn that my fish didnt want me to know about....

Ok you guys will never guess what just happened! A male I have, who has been a dead beat dad in the past, had a "secret" nest of eggs in his divider. I just so happened to have a girl in the diver next to him, she had gotten through the sand at the bottom and into his compartment, i didnt think anything of it because she was too big for him and I never thought he would be able to wrap her, and i didnt notice anything in the tank. I removed her and went on about my day. Its a heavily planted tank, so i had no idea he had one under a leaf that had reached the surface by my live aquatic plant. I went to feed him his dinner, and didnt come to front of the tank like he usually does, i looked for him and he was in the back corner with his eggs. So i couldnt just leave the eggs and the daddy in there (water level, other fish to worry about), so i scooped up most of the nest and stuck it in a little container, and i put him in with it. I expected him to get stressed and just forget about his eggs, or eat them, since he has been a dead beat dad before. NOPE, he started making a new nest in this container and putting his eggs right back in it, CRAZY night!

WE HAVE BABIES! Daddy isnt really helping them stay in the nest, but they seem very strong and are going up and down, up and down, up and down, i need to get a cup and lower the water in there for them.
