What is the minimum size tank for a breeding pair of kribs

I've read that they can go in a ten if they're alone is that true

I've done them alone in a 15 gal ( 24" x 12" x 12" ) but not smaller. Young fish may be able to be done in a 10 but why move the parents if you don't have to? Also, if you plan on letting them raise the babies for a while, you may need the space of the larger tank so the fry don;t kill each other over territory. If this is the case, you may want to do a 20 gal long.

Hope this helps.

I agree with at least a 15g but keep in mind the size of your kribs and potential # of fry that could be around. Plus some caves/rocks, hiding spots, a 20 long may be a bit better.
