1 pair, kribs like room and get up to 4 inches long. You can get 2 pairs and let them decide to pair up with whomever they like, but you will need to remove the other pair afterwards or they will attack each other.

How old are they? Kribs are not picky and will pair up. Unless they are still to young. Has any of them dug out a cave yet?

I just lost my one female and took the odd female out of my other tank. They paired up pretty fast and are digging out nests like crazy!

Are they doing the ushape to eachother? Shaking really fast? Anything like that? Does the female have a big deep purple/red belly on her?

There are two different types of shaking and U shape. At least from what I have seen. The pair in the 110 actually have something that could eat their babies... They do the u shape to the angels and to the upside-down cat. Anything that has a chance to fight. It's almost like they are just trying to make themselves looks bigger. They also angle themselves towards the fish. The courting u shape I have seen is a little bit different. Jmo trying getting a new female. That way the one male has two females to choose from. But you will have to rehome the third wheel once they pair up. IMO a 110 doesn't offer the space for her to get away...
