View Full Version : New Kribs and breeding

02-26-2008, 04:47 AM
I started a ten gallon aquarium a few months ago. I am a fishkeeping newbie, and I added a male and female Kribensis to my tank last week. I provided a cave for them and they seem to have taken advantage of it :41: , though it's too dark to see in. Assuming there are eggs in there, what should I be doing? What do I do when they hatch? etc.
Needless to say I have never bred fish before, but I am very excited.

Thanks in advance!

just wait and watch, kribs are awesome parents. just make sure the eggs dont get fungus, add melafix and pimafix now to prevent fungus on the eggs

Feed baby brine shrimp, though they might be big enough to accept commercial fry foods.

Thanks for the advice! How long does it take for them to hatch?
