Show me your Kribs..

Hi everyone I have a hold on a male and female Kribensis Cichlid ( Pelvicachromis Pulcher )at the local LFS and plan on picking them up towards the end of this week. So what should I be sure to have in the tank for them besides lots of plants? If you have them show me your set up if you like.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

I have pelvicachromis taeniatus and they are just geographical varientsof the P. Pulcher. Besides plants, caves. I would recommend coconut shells but flower pots turned over and with the whole enlarged are fine as well. I'll try to get some pics of mine on tonight.

38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata
1 Botia Straita
1 Ancistrus Sp.
6 Poecilia Reticulata

If you have a little extra cash to spend, these caves are AWESOME for cichlids, They arent expensive, just a little more than a coconut shell.. but they look awesome.

I will say, they look MUCH better in person than they do in the pictures. I was really surprised at how well made they are. I bought this one and my mom liked it so much she bought herself 2 caves for her pair of kribs and they have already spawned inside of one of the caves!

Here are some pictures of my cave in the tank! This one cost me under $5 and with shipping it was still under $10. It got here in 2 days also!

They bred after I took some photos. When the female is in the pot she is digging a pit for the babies when they hatch.
