Kribs are one of my favourite dwarfs. I currently keep all my breeding pairs (pulcher, 3 locales of Taenitus, sp aff suboccelatus, sacrimontis) In 15 gallon tanks with small schools of dither fish (White clouds, danios). I do this for breeding purposes but can say that they don't do well with others when it is time to spawn. I watched last night as my taenitus pair picked off one of the white clouds. I wouldn't suggest these in a community tank if you are going to keep males and females. In my 55 gallon high tech planted I keep a school of harlequins with a group of 3 discus. Near the bottom of the tank there is a trio of nanacara anomola ( A really nice dwarf if you can find one) and about 6 different morphs of the German Blue Rams. I would avoid the Bolivians as they get larger and if you have softer water the German Blue Rams should be doing just fine. They also give you lots of variety, you can get electric blue, the wild form, gold, long fins, electric gold (I think they may just call it that in my area), and balloon (many people like these but I don't support line breeding to get a deformed fish to breed true). The ever popular apistogramma cacatuoides lives in many of my community tanks as well and I would say it is well suited and very colorful.
