Well, in my experience kribs aren't too aggressive. They coexist peacefully in my 55g with 12 cardinals and 6 cories. What are the dimensions of your aquarium?

I wouldnt recommend it because you already have the angels in there and he might take over their terriotry because angels are cichlids too. So i think you should leave the kirbs out for the angels sake

remember,kribs are bottom dwellers and angels stay mlre to the top,unless the angels are spawning,it shouldnt be a problem

I dont think anybody can give any advice yet... the tank size will be the determining factor.

Yes, I agree. If it's too small then their territories will most likely overlap.

kribs are peacefull fish untli they are breeding. They will then only attack other fishes to protect the fry. My kribs are in a 60L tank and breeds every month

mine are in a 55g, but they havent bred yet i dont think. They only defend their itty bitty seashell and the male is somewhat agressive to fry and juvenile fish at feeding time.

Is the aggression better or worse if you just get one? I am considering getting just one in my 20 gal with a female betta, pearl gourami, 3 cherrys, 4 serpaes and 1 danio. (I won't do it until I lose at least one of them, though. I don't want more than 10 fish in this tank.) If you get just one it can't spawn and it seems that spawning time is when they can get nasty.
