Blue Botias spawned!! (long)

Hello I am new here and I have a 35 gallon aquarium with only 5 orange finned loaches (Blue Botias) and yesterday I came home from work and went to feed them when I saw one of my loaches guarding the cave!
At first I thought it was nothing but I then saw most of the other blues clear on the other side of the tank so I looked closer to be amazed,seeing a little over 6 babies in the entrance of the cave!!!
She/He guards them fiercely! I would have never thought they would have done this because I have never seen them paired up or any breeding displays I wish I could get a pic up in the mean time I am going to have to get them in a baby net without getting bit.I am a little unclear on what to feed them any suggestions and should I put the mom in with them????
