ive always found that plant pots work relly well for them. The only thing with breeding them in a community aquarium is the fact that they get aggresive when breeding. So make sure the other species have a place to escape and that none of them are slow or fragile. Also have u thought about where you are going to re home the babys when they grow up

I don't think your kribs should pose a huge problem in your tank even a breeding pair. It dosen't matter if they are albino or not they will still breed together. Kribs are excellent parents and it will be fun watching them gaurd their babies. You should have a place to place the fry when they get too big. Most LFS can take them and people might be interested if you are interested in making a profit. It shouldn't be hard to get rid of fry from kribs.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell
