KRIBENSIS: 2 females no males?

It appears (hopefully) that I am on the last phase of my cycle for my 29 gallon planted feshwater tank and now I am beginning to think harder, more seriously, on my stocking.

I love Kribensis, they appear to be available in my area, my water parameters appear to fit their need and they appear to be a good beginner fish.

My plans are to be that of a community tank and I would like to minimize the drama if at all possible with good stocking decisions.

Right now I have no desire to breed Kribs.

Along with the plants my setup includes a couple of cave structures, some wood and rocks.

Question #1: Will one female live in harmony without another species partner?

Question #2: Honestly....... I would prefer two Kribs, can I stock with two females and will they be able to live a joyous existence with each other without a male?

Based on my needs as described what are your thoughts on having all female Kribs?

Thank You.......

Sure, you can keep 2 females together. With no males around they should get along fine. Or, if you decide you want just 1 krib, that would be fine too. If you have no desire to breed I would definitely not recommend a pair for you, since pairs often tend to breed whether we want them to or not.

If a pair were to breed, how aggressive will they get?
I have a 155g with sand substrate and a dozen large rocks and plants, and I am interested in getting a male and female.
My tank is a FW community with only five Cory catfish and four juvenile angels.
I plan to get two more juvenile angels for a total of six, and maybe a school of rasbora.
