I wouldn't do it. I have Kribs and I have Bettas. If your Kribs decide to spawn the Betta will want to eat the fry and the Kribs will defend them to the death. I think it could be a disaster.

Agreed. Kribs become very aggressive before, during, and after breeding. I've had them chase a full grown SAE out of the tank, and kill two rummy nose tetra. As soon as they look like they may breed, they should be all by themselves.

I know this thread is a bit old, but I just saw a tank with female Kribs and a male betta together at the LFS.
