Exclamation I HAVE KRIB EGGS!!! Pictures!!!

I love these fish and I am very excited because my female Krib just laid her eggs! This is my first experience in breeding and they seem like a great start for a newbie like me. Here is some pictures I took today or you can visit my blog Breeding My Kribensis. There are more pictures and video.

Just Keep Swimming,

Kribs are realy cool in this way, They make excelent parents, You will have alot of fun looking at them, They grow phenomenaly fast as well

A word of caution...Kribs are very prolific breeders....(This is an Understatement)

Mine have spawned about 3 times in 5 months. By the time the fry start hanging around by themselves Mom is gonna be ready to spawn again and ad will begin chasing away the fry..Thats when you should try and get them out.

Have fun and Enjoy

PS. I see that you also have neons in there as well. ALthough kribs are very peaceful cichlids they can harm your neon. I had 6 of them in my tank with my kribs. The Kribs didnt pay attention to them until the fry started swimming, and then I started noticing some of my neons had ripped fins and the Kribs would charge at them and chase them around. By their second spawn the Kribs had declared all out war on my Neons and ended up killing them.

I too will adopt some if you feel the need to... relocated some extras....

My fish store doesn't know how to order fish *sigh*
My paroon shark is my best friend... In fact I was thinking on having him over for dinner.

Kribs are some of the coolest fish to watch raise their young. Good luck!

I've just set up my tank and bought myself a nice large, healthy looking male and a nice big chrimson bellied female. My male was in the tank alone for a while and was looking a bit lonely, wasn't swimming round alot and appeared generally lethergic. As soon as I put in my new female he coloured up, put up his fins and has started swimming about much more enigetically! I'm planning to breed mine and sell the fry to my LFS's. They're getting along like a house on fire, so I hope it won't be too long till I've got a brood going
