Kribensis pair to my 75 gal?

An acquaintance has a male/ female Kribensis pair that he was going to flush or dump. I would leto add them to m 75 gal. Does anyone have anything to say about this either way? Whether I should or not.
My 75 gal currently houses 6 convicts (2 breeding pairs), one Oscar, 6 emerald green Cory cats, one red tail shark, one lg pleco.
Let me know...

I wouldn't do it. The convicts and oscar would tear them up. Kribs are a lower-aggression fish where as convicts and oscars are highly aggressive. Kribs are better suited to a community type setting, larger tetras etc.

I've been researching these fish for possible occupants of my new tank and it says they're pretty peaceful for cichlids and since convicts and oscars are the exact opposite it probably isn't a good idea. Oh and they're river fish from west Africa where as your others are from south and central America.
