    So I have had my 20 gallon high tank set up for about a month and a half. It contains a bonded pair of Wild Scarlet Red Kribensis, a Bristlenose Pleco, 8 Checkered Barbs, and 1 Zebra snail.

    So for the first update of many!

    All inhabitants have last since the starting of the tank and are now settled in nicely.

    The Kribs have laid claim to a large stump with a few different entrances while the Barbs have decided the terra cotta pot is their base. And the pleco is in love with the sword plant.


    And now the most exciting news!


    My Kribs laid eggs about a week ago. I thought it had been a failed attempt as it would be their first attempt, but surprisingly enough mother and father were escorting their 20 - 30 live spawn around the stump and towards a grove of moss balls. I am hoping that most survive since I did not expect such a positive outcome on the first try.

    I will add pictures as soon as possible!

    UPDATE:

    I am down to about 13 - 20 babies now. Apparently my Barbs were sneaky and took a few. Hopefully two small feedings a day will keep them at bay until the babies are large enough. They are now swimming up and down the glass and are zooming around the roots of a few of the plants.
