my kribs have gone beautiful, the males fins are blue with bit of yellow, the female like a deep red belly with the black deapend.

They're in their breeding colors. Looks like the female is fat with eggs.

how long can i expect for eggs to be laid thanks;-)

It could take them several weeks before they're successful if this is their first time. The divider is a must. Heck, a completely nonporous divider would be best, as I can see the parrots sucking the krib fry through divider holes.

How are you sure your parrots aren't dyed? Most of the regular orange/red ones are dyed as well, not just the more strange colors.

they are definately spawning, bright red, fat belly tells it all... mine always ate their eggs and when they finally let some hatch the fry only lasted a couple days before being eaten :/ definately divide them, being chased will stress them out.

They defiantly look like they are breeding

Hello i am new here and have a set of krib that layed eggs back on the 24 of march. prior to that i had only had them a few weeks. now i have about 20 fry swimming all over the tank what am i going to do with all these babys wow what a cool process to watch. I havent seperated them from the babys they seem to be pretty good parents they get along and even mouth up the babys and spit them else were if there were there not sapose to be. i am new to fish let alone the breeding thing how do i go about finding them a home once there big enough thanks shari@hillscues.com

hello and welcome.
congratulations on the fry :)
you could inquire at the LFS (local fish store) if they would be interested in the fry,
or you could advertise them on here.
