Is my krib ready?

Hey there
I just got my first kribs, 2 females and 1 male to breed them. They are the first fish I am going to breed and have a 7g. Is there any good tips on how to make them ready?? Here is a pic of my girl.
Thanks

They might be. Since the female is large and coloured up I would say yes. You might have eggs and not even know. They best sign of this is the female and some times male will stay in the same spot or hide out to protect the fry. Since its only a 7g I would keep an eye out for agression from the pair to any other fish once eggs or fry hatch.

Very nice female by they way. Mine died sadly as the male got a bit too protective of HIS fry. Can we see some picture of the male!?

Thanks heaps, they are not sitting in one particular spot yet but I only go them a few days ago. They can't seem to stay away from each other does that mean they are a pair? Here is a picture
