Thread: Krib Agression

  1. Default Krib Agression

    0 Not allowed!
    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.

    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.

    Madagascariensis is right on, that Krib in the picture is a male. I would re-home or trade it back to the store. Nothing good will come from 2 males in a small foot print tank. If the tank was longer with a few caves in it you might be able to keep them both happy, again might.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.
