| || | Kribs have fry, killi drama.
So my pair of Kribs have a nice group of fry and they're doing the whole good parenting thing by showing them around the tank. (29g) I was using Ember tetras as dither fish, I started out with 8 mind you. One day I was at the LFS looking at other stocking options when I ended up just buying an amazon sword when I saw a lone Golden wonder killi, and I decided to pick him up. He gets settled in the tank and after a couple of days my roommate mentions he can only see 7 Embers. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I am now down to two Embers, two kribs and their fry, and the lovely killi, I really like watching him stalk, but i have yet to see a successful kill. The Ph in the tank is 7.7-7.8 and I need some suggestions.
With parent Kribs, and a put anything that will fit in its mouth because i'm fat killi, I'm looking for another group of dithers for this particular situation. I like vibrant colors, no hybrids though. Red is preferred. Also interested in a single/group of utilitie fish that will be safely kept with Krib parents. If suggesting a pleco, the uglier the better, especially if it has those prongs on the face. Something like a Medusa, though Ph is an issue. Also any other random/cool/ugly/colorful suggestions are welcome :)
