I have aquired 2 kribs unexpectadly (was planning to get a pair in a few weeks after setting up the new tank) anyway they arrived earlier ---- anyway -- once they have settled in - I would like to get an algea eater to put in with them any suggestions??

One of the smaller algae eating pleco's could be cute and won't touch the fry from the Kribs... a school of Otocinclus are also an option

Boy you are going to have your hands full with Krib fry soon :hmm3grin2orange: Enjoy it!!

Same congrats on the fish, I use Simese algae eaters, there pretty cool, and they work well.

I have kept small loaches and bristlenose plecos with my Kribs. Cories would probably work too.
