Kribensis Stocking Questions
So I bought 2 Kribs from the LFS the other day, and I am about 90% sure I have 1M 1F. Unfortunately, my female chases my poor male around the tank untill he has to find a spot in my Hornwort. I think she is ready to breed while he isnt. These guys are about 2" in size, with the female being bigger.
-I have been thinking about adding 2 more Kribs to the tank, so I may be able to get 2 pairs. The employees are very good at sexing these guys, and get who I ask for. Would this cause complete chaos to the tank if this happened (30 gallon tank)?
-I plan on stocking this tank with 1 RTBS, 1 female betta, 4 Kribs (maybe), and 8-10 Neon Tetras. Possible? My tank is decently planted - it has 5 pieces of driftwood that all reach the surface of the water, plus many hiding spots.
I can sell baby Kribs to different locations across town if needed. I have my old 5 gallon corner for their grow-out tank, but I know I wouldn't be able to keep every baby to grow to size.
usually with kribs its the other way around, my male gently chases my female, hes longer and thinner, while the female is shorter round and has a deep purple belly. do you have any pics?
My camera with the pics I shot of the Kribs basically died. The lens wont open. :?
But my female is fatter and has rounder rims, and definately much more colorful than my male. The male has pointer fins, and is more slender.
But will I be able to keep 4 Kribs in this tank with my other fish plans?
One pair in a 30g is all you'll be able to have. The domonant pair will not allow any others and the tank is too small for multiple pairs.
