    Well seeing as this thread seems to have turned into my krib journal I will keep you all updated

    Since mummy ate the eggs I revamped the tank, added a huge big bit of driftwood that I got for a bargin!! The pair seem to have a great bond, their colours are so contrasting and vibrant. For some reason the kribs and the firemouth love having some stand off 'look at me I'm awesome and bigger than you' moments, no harm done and funny to watch.

    Fingers crossed for more breeding!!

    picked up a male and female krib at the weekend for my large tank. they are relatively small and have some growing to do but thats what i want. They are near enough paired off aswell - watched them for a while in the store and picked them out of the group as the male was chasing all others away. beautiful colour on the female already.

    What else have you got in the tank along with them?

    Their behaviour when they have the fry is something else to watch. I was amazed at how well and how protective my last pair got over their fry. They where like 2 body guards hounding anything that came near them.

    I have a load of platies in with mine and a bolivian ram so the platies should act well as dither fish and provide them with plenty of distraction. and if they have any fry they can then go to my fry tank that i have running also with a few young platies in there.

    Aw I can't wait to have fry

    Mines are housed with a pleco, cory catfish, firemouth and some danios that I was unable to catch.

    The danios will be good dither fish for them to chase away and keep them occupied. Some people say its always good to have dithers as a way to stop the male and female harrasing each other etc.

    They should have fun keeping that firemouth away from any fry but they really do go into a whole new dimension when protecting fry. I was amazed at how much of my 4ft tank they claimed. They had claimed about 3 ft of it for themselves.

    Yeah I have read up that dither fish are good as they eases the tension between the pair.

    They seem to have claimed a spot for mating already, but the female still seems pretty skinny, not holding alot of eggs yet.

    My firemouth and the male krib have a tussle every now and then, no harm ever comes out of it though.
