Interested in Kribensis, few questions

Hi everyone(:
Ive been reading a lot about the dawrf kribensis, but have a few questions.

Are they easy fish to take are of? I want a male and female and they will live in a 30 gallon. Is this a good or bad idea? I have some plants and will add caves. I don't really care if they breed or not. I just want pretty fish.
Is it recommended for a beginner?

That's a lot of personality already.. Kribs go nuts when they breed.. Perhaps a small school of something instead?

Dang it. Haha. Well what if I changed the 30 gallon to a 55 gallon? Would that be a little more space?

I think a 55 would be better than a 30 but I wouldn't go for a pair id go for a single. I have one in my 55 and she's already aggressive enough, I couldn't imagine adding another.

I thought they were semi aggressive and super aggressive when breeding?

Okay. I'll most likely wait till I get a 55.

Are they easy fish to care for though?

They're easy to care for but they can definitely be very snippy.
