    Ok so I am trying to plan out fish for my 36 gallon tank and was hoping to put a pair of Kribs in there. What would be some good dither fish to add? I like cardinal tetras and danios, but will the cardinal tetras be too small for when the kribs get aggressive while spawning? I wasn't sure on...

    I haven't gotten any eggs or anything from my three danio, but how do I sex them to see if they're compatible? Are they choosy with mates? :| I just wanted to know in case they DO happen to breed, and then I won't have to freak out when I find the egg and isolate it.
