Please help with my Kribs??

looking for advice.. i currently have a 75 gallon tank with a pair of breeding kribs.. i also have 20 tigerbarbs and a rainbow shark... the kribs successfully bred last week but of course the 50 or so babies became food and are now all gone. I have a 29 gallon tank that sits in my basement empty right now in storage. My 75 gallon also has two AC filters a 110 and a 70.
If I were to fill up this tank(29 gallon) and put the two kribs in the new tank will they stay a pair still? I assume they will start breeding again pretty soon... I noticed some dead tiger barbs over the past couple weeks that i can only assume were killed by the mating kribs. Also since i have a AC 70, can i just put the AC 70 in the 29 gallon tank and hope for a close to instant cycle? and will the 75 gallon tank suffer now if i remove one of the filters. I will buy a new AC 70 and put the new one in the 75 gallon tank.... I am so sorry as this is probably very confusing... I just dont want to keep going thru this with the Kribs... I dont really want baby kribs as i have no where to put them but i dont know of any other options as my kribs are getting mean to the other fish while breeding... .... thank you.

Mating kribs should not be in a tank with any other fish. They become extremely aggressive towards anything that comes near them.
