Yippee My Kribs have Spawned (Yet Again) ver 7.8

They've done it once more. This time after having spawned barely 3 weeks earlier. I moved to my new apt about two weeks ago and had to tear down my tank. The fry were about a week old. (free swiming). So I gave them all to my cousin who had just finished cycling a 40 gal.
About 2 weeks after moving, they did it again.

This is spawn #7 actualy 8 since they ate the first one. in about 5 months.

If I had a dollar for every one of them fry.....:p

Congratulations. Once they get going they really get going don't they?

Feed your fish well--that female needs lots of extra nutrients to keep her going!

Well...you are the kribbman :P

Congrats. I've been considering trying a Krib spawning project in my little 10g. I have other tanks I could move them to if I do get a spawn. I'd really like to get a fairly mature pair. Everything on aquabid is for older fry and juvies.

I have tried GBRs before, but it seems the 3 males I have had passed without signs of illness. I have lost 1 female due to internal parasites, but my other 2 females are still living healthily in my 20g community.

Next time I see some healthy local kribs, maybe I will pick them up. What is the age of sexual maturity for kribs?

Im not exactly sure at what age kribs reach sexual maturity im guessing its something like around 6 to 8 months although I had mine for about 3 months before they first spawned.

.....Your kribs might have trouble finding a spot if your keeping then with Malawi's or maybe your fry/eggs are being eaten by more agressive fish....But that might not be probable due to the Kribbs reputation for being fierce defenders of their offspring I wouldnt be surprised to hear that they could hold off a couple of hungry OSCARS.....(hope no one has tried) They are realy cute just dont mess with their kids...lol
