Umm, If I am reading this right. you have another tank that is not cycled and you want to put the krib eggs in there? How big is the main tank compared to the spare tank? What kind of filter on both tanks? Have you tried a breeder net?

Once the kribs have got the hang of breeding, they'll be fine guarding the eggs/fry, just as long as there's plenty of hiding spots/planted areas. It's the other fish you'll have to worry about as they get pretty aggressive.

Are you wanting to breed them, or just happy if it happens. I wouldn't keep 2 pairs of kribs in a 3ft tank, they will get too territorial.
If you plan on breeding seriously, then you need a decent size tank for the krib pair, a fry tank and a growing on setup, successful spawns could net you 50+ fish at a time, and if you seperate them from the parents, they will breed every few weeks.

If you have a pair, leave them in the community and let nature take its course. Watching them do the parenting thing is really cool, though you're better saving the fry into another tank if you want more to survive.
