i went to my lfs this morning wanting to buy a kribensis. when i got there a note on the tank said to be sold in pairs. problem is i only want one because when they breed they get territorial and i only have small fish im my setup.
has anyone had any experience keeping these fish, i would appriciate more info. thanks
Most places I know of sell in pairs... a lone Krib would be a bit of a sad sight dont you think I keep Kribs and when they are in breeding mode and displaying they are fantastic.. however yes they do get a bit aggro around this time and so need to be kept away from delicate fish. If you cant afford for the fish to breed maybe a different choice of fish would be best?
they dont do as well in singles, not tried them but ive never heard of them being kept alone, they do look great like eurayle says when they are in breeding colours, you could just siphon out the eggs i'd have though if you didnt want the to get too bad
remember though they'll be used to fresh water when in lfs so need to be acclimatised slowly and carefully
There are no experts, mearly beginners who know more than others.
