Kribensis Genders

Last night I bought a pair of Kribs, pretty sure I got a male and a female but they are starting to look more and more alike to me. Let me know what you think!!

Krib #1 (Female?)




Krib #2 (Male?)

#1 is on to #2 is on bottom.


I could put up some more pictures of #2 if needed, but they'll be blury because he's constantly moving.

The red stomach definitely resembles a sign of being a female. But then the fins looks like one of a male.

I've been breeding my pair for almost a year and you definetely got a male and female pair, the girl has a rounder body style and a plump colorful belly, the male is a slimmer body style and a pointy dorsal fin, coloration can change but body size and shape don't lie, you have a good pair good luck to you

Thank you!! They are both settling in really well. The female keeps doing a little shimmy every time the male swims past. Need to get them a couple caves! What do yours breed in? Thinking about using pots.

I just offered a lot of rocks and formed caves with them. Last month I had about 100 fries.
