The Kribs and Barbs were introduced to the tank yesterday. I have 3 red tux females at the moment, having trouble finding more. We wound up getting gold barbs instead of cherries and 10 instead of 8.

I am pretty sure we have 1 male and 3 female kribs. One could be an immature male, but I'm 80% sure that it's a female. The male went straight to the cichlid stone cave at the front corner, which is pretty awesome. That way he won't be hiding in the back 24x7.

Pics will be forthcoming when the fish settle in and color up.
