OMG I have take pride in the care and handeling and catching of fish. I help ppl at walmart. And then the managers get upset. Who wants to weight a hour for fish that may not even live when they get them home. I know walmart is no good with there fish, just pointing out that I am not bad at catching all fish. But yes... pet stores have them in smaller tanks. Even my wife tried, then bot of us. I cant fins the 4 Kribensis anywhere. So not only is this Bumble Bee fish picking on others. Now our repeated attempts got to be stressing the others out. OMG! Im going to stick a power cord into the water. That will fix that dang fish. JOKING. the 4 kribs I just got yesterday seem to favor the left side of the tank. So I try not to mess with that part... But when she gets to the right. I CANT GET HER. To top it off I got her from Pet Smart and the was a we little thing. Less then a inch. I HOPE the KRIBENSIS grow a back bone and kill that Bumble Bee.

WE GOT THE LITTLE F'ER. Well my wife did it really. I had a small flower pot just upside down. And when my wife was stressing and winnning over him picking on another fish. She saw him go into the pot and SLAM, she put the net over that hole. She called me and I lifted and swooped him up. He is now in a 90 gallon aquarium with 3 Comet Gold Fish. If they get hungry tonight, then I guess its a "Food Chain" Otherwise he will go on Craigslist. But now all my Kribensis can live in piece. I also have some other torpedo fish in there that has a long stripe along the body. Pet Smart had them in a variety tank with a picture of them. It said "Auratus Chichlid" They seem cool. They even helped me get the Bumble Bee, I swear they were helping. When he ended up on the left side of the tank they would nip and chase after him. Are they OK with Kribensis? They seem fine and have never seen the fight.

The Auratus and the bee will be fine together. They are both mbuna and both are aggressive. The Auratus I think is more aggressive then the bee. Wait it out and see what happens. The bee will more than likely kill the goldfish and eat them.

Maybe african butterfly, tetras, barbs or maybe jewels cichlid would be ok. But any of the african lake fish are more than likely aren't going to work.

Not saying all these will work or together just maybe giving options to loom into. Because I've never kept a krib but its a beautiful fish.

What lakes or fish can I put in this 125g tank with my favorite Kribensis? "Lakes, meaning like Tanganeka, Malui or what ever. You know what I mean? Thanks. I still cant recall what first attracted me to this fish. It was back when my brother and I were into Oscars, Red Devels, and Jaguire Cichlids. Maybe it was the fact they did not need a 500g tank when full grown? I dont know. I remember I was one of them Betta(fighting fish" lovers and air breathing fans back then also... Like Lung Fish, Betta's, and Paradise Fish. So I Just dont know. But I got 4 now and soon to add more, until they mate.

Do you think I should use the powerheads in the 125 with the kribs? I'll take a current video with my phone.

This video was from last week. I dont know what that blue guy is. My wife wanted him from walmart. His name was listed as "Assorted Cichlids" LOL

Im working on a current video from my phone to show my filter locations and the one power head.

On the wild I believe they live in fast and slow waters so I don't think that will become a problem using the power heads. Not sire if you.have seen this so here is a link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelvicachromis_pulcher
The blue cichlid is another Malawi cichlid. You need to stay away from them.

I know and understand sadly I've never kept this fish so I cant go off of experience.
