Re: Any cichlids? #11
I have a pair of Kribensis and I love them. They both look stunning, have great little characters and have just spawned! They are very protective parents too from what I have seen

Kribs are great parents and the colour changes while they have the fry is ace.
I've got 30+ baby kribs upstairs but the parents now live in the lfs display tank due to being of an eatable size.
I do miss them though.
Central Americans; once they pop they don't stop!

Re: Any cichlids? #14
No pics of the fry yet - mum keeps moving them to different hiding places, in wood and in a little cave. They're not free swimming yet, they're just little wigglies! Kribs definately make fantastic parents from what I've seen - chasing the cherry barbs and retrieving the fry when they kept falling out of their little hidey hole in the wood!

We did have a huge drama on Wednesday when they hatched as my Dad (trying to help by putting a tank divider in place) accidentally covered all the fry in gravel because he couldnt see them! I just couldn't find them after that, despite searching (carefully). But obviously, mummy and daddy Krib saved the day and found (some of) them!

Will keep you posted and try and take some pics
