krib breeding questions
my kribs have paired up finally in my 29g community. i heard that they can get pretty aggresive when breeding. so i want to set up a 10g tank with sand so they can dig and then i want to put upside down flower pots in it to.also some rosy barbs to be dither fish. will this be fine for them? is the size of the tank big enough? when they do breed what do you feed the babies? any tips on how to speed up the breeding?

The 29 they are in would be a good tank to spawn in. I have a pair that spawned a month (maybe less) ago in a 29. There was four blackskirt tetras and three other kribs in with them. Luckily there was a lot of cover and I was able to save ten.These ten babies are in a ten gallon by themselves, now. It was pairs first spawn and I was afraid they might eat them. To spawn in a ten gallon is a little iffy in my opinion-P. Pulcher can get pretty wild with each other at spawning times. Isn't Petco having a sale? Grab a 20 long and put a little sponge filter in there, seed it and when its' cycled..kribs will be in heaven. Kribs can throw 40 to 75 young at a time!
