| || | Krib and Ram????
Hi, I have a 29 gallon tank with:
-9 albino tiger barbs
-13 kribensis cichlids ( a breeding pair + 1 adult female + 10 free swimming 1 inch babies)
I am going to bring 9 baby kribs to my LFS and keep one, so the breeding pair aren't so aggresive towards one krib. The tank is separated in the middle by a mound of rockks and fake plants. The krib pair only takes up the space on the left of the rocks, therefore only taking up 1/4 of the tank space. The other non-breeding kribs usually stay in the rocks and plants. Their are tons of caves and holes and tunnels through the rocks as well as 3 coconut caves. I want to have a pair of rams in my tank but I don't know if I can. If the krib pair was more aggresive, I wouldn't consider this at all, but they are very docile and they have bred in this tank without harming ANY of the other fish. I think the rams would be fine, but I've never kept them so I need other peoples opinions.
Any thoughts, ideas or info will help!!!
