    I've been thinking of getting a pair of Kribesnsis for my tank. the lfs keeps them in a large tank with loads of them in there. Is there a way to ensure that i get a male and a female that the male will accept?? there are so many in there, i never see them paired off or anything.

    Buy six or more. You'll get a pair, and the way kribs work out a heirarchy is very interesting.

    the females have pink on the side and the males have a little pink but it is very light in color. The females are the more domanate and aggressive fish so you will have to watch her attitude twards the male. Make sure you have alot of hiding places for both of them becuase the female tends to pick a territory and push the male away.

    When they are juveniles the sexes aren't easy to tell.

    i dont know about tank sizes but i got 2 kribs last monday.
    i picked a female by looking at her belly- it was a reddy scarlet colour and very round looking.
    and the male, he was long and slimmer and his colours were not as intense.
    i put them in my 3 ft community tank and they are already taking up residence in the cave and the female seems to be "sweeping" the interior with her tail????
    a sign of the beginings of breeding behavior???
    ive never had kribs before this so im waiting to see.
    4ft cichlid community
    4ft community tank
    2ft endler guppy tank
    think i have MTS!!!!!

    40 gallon. 55 would be better.
