Thread: Krib Agression
I have 2 kribs and 3 zebra danios along with an algae eater in a 20 gallon high. There are many rocks and a couple caves. I know I have one male for sure but i'm not 100 % sure that the other is a female. It doesn't have the red belly like most females and it always gets chased by the male. I've had them for about 2 weeks and the male has a cave picked out and whenever the other krib comes anywhere near it he chases it. I was told it was a female at the store and I thought so too at the time, but now i'm not so sure.

The first problem is that 3 danios do not make a proper sized school - you need 8-10. And the second is that a 20 high is too small a tank for zebra danios, as it's only 24 inches long.My 75 gal Journal & My Dual 29 gal Journal

I presume you are talking about the kribs. the fish in picture is pretty much 99% chance male. females would be much less elongated, with a larger belly and shorter fins.
thank you! I thought it was a weird looking female for a krib
