Molly dither fish for breeding kribs?

Hi all,

Recently rescued a bucket full of fish from an infuriating couple that didn't give a s&£t about water quality or feeding or just general care of the poor little buggers. After getting them all back to fighting fitness and rehousing most of them I've decided to keep the pair of kribensis. I initially thought they were stunted males but after a few weeks of TLC, the male is large and robust while the female is smaller, rotund and beautiful colours. They appear to have begun pre-spawning (clearing a cave of loose stones and the female dancing for the male) and I'd like to know if mollies are an acceptable dither fish? Will there be any problems with my yo-yo loaches or will they also play the dither role? The rest of my stock includes 3 plec species and some ornate snails. Any advice from krib keepers would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
