There are a few reasons why a male kribensis would turn on the other tank mates. In most cases male kribs tend to get a mean streak when the female is about to give birth or they are defending their fry. Kribs are great parents and will defend their mate and/or fry relentlessly. Sometimes you might have one that goes AWOL (in this case yours) and attack the other occupants of the tank. Unfortunately you didn't catch it in time or some of your fish could have been spared. If such an event happens again I would recommend that you immediately quarantine the aggresor. Give him a week in a separate tank, devoid of other fish, and then reintroduce him to your community tank slowly.

I'm sorry to hear about the casualties and I hope you can get everything straightened out with your tank. I hope my info helps.

Is as Ptrain says. Is also normal behaivor for many cichlids to eat smaller fish whether mating,spawning.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
