A 10g limits you very much. Once teh pair forms, remove the odd female and that's about it. You may, may being the key word, be able to add a dwarf Synodontis for a scavenger.

I love keeping kribs, they are great in a community. I bred a pair , and they developed problems with each other after some time of raising fry. When this happened, removing the female worked. About a year later a son and the mother appeared to be having some fun :)

10gal should be fine for some kribs, but not for the full size of a brood.

ok well ill try to do that. But im not entirely sure that there both females but i think so after venting them. If one is chasing the other one into hiding iss that a sign of two females and that i should exchange one for a male?

Sometimes chasing is a sign of intra-sex arguing, but sometimes it's also breeding behavior. With kribs it's pretty easy to tell apart the sexes. I'd recommend looking up the sexual dimorphism for kribs and that way you'll know for sure if you've got two fish of the same sex or not.
