    I'm thinking of setting up a 55 gallon to house a wild caught pair sometime either this summer or the fall. I'm hopefully going to spawn them I know kribs are easier then rams to keep/breed. My taps ph is 7 is this okay for wild caught giant kribs? Or would using RO water from world of fish be better it has ph of 5.

    Dave ( supplier) said they will do fine but I'm still wondering if there is anything I missed? Will dither fish such as zebra danios or rainbows eat the eggs/fry?

    Will an emperor 400 bio wheel suck up fry? Will the ph from the tap cause an uneven number of females/male offspring should they decide to pair up/breed.

    If these guys are like regular kribs, then a pH of 7 would probably be better, but ask Dave what he keeps them at. Pretty much any dither fish will eat some eggs and fry, but some larger pencil fish would do well as they don't predate on fry and won't be eaten by the kribs.

    Okay... are dither fish nesscary to get them to breed? Would keeping the dither fish well fed cut down on the losses.

    what types of pencilfish would you recomend.
