Thread: Kribensis Tank

  1. Default Kribensis Tank


    0 Not allowed!
    I visited my LFS and they have recently gotten in a good amount of them from a breeder and their vendor. I was wondering what I should be looking for when I choose my Kribs? Color? Certain points that would lead me to believe unhealthy stock? Etc...?


    I was also wondering if I should keep them in a pair or try a trio?



    I have a 20 gallon tall tank. The other inhabitants of the tank will be 1 BN Pleco, and some small school of dither fish.


    Any other information would be very helpful!

    I keep a pair, they are a mated pair but haven't managed to get past the egg laying stage yet.

    To find a pair you need 1 male and 3 or more females, once they pair up you rehome the remaining females. Kribs are very feisty and need a lot of 'breathing space' in a large-ish tank with lots of nooks and crannies they will conten themselves. However you need dither fish. These can be tetras, barbs, whatever, just something for them to chase off, if they don't have them then the male will be too sore on the female and maybe end up killing her.

    Problem - 20G tall can't support 4+kribs to find a pair, a mated pair don't have a lot of room in your 20G when it comes to floor space.

    Result - In my opinion, combined with experience a pair of kribs just aren't suitable for your style of tank
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
