Hahaha, I love the names! How old are the fry? I've been looking for quality kribs for a while and most are grayed out, its a rare sight around here to find kribs as nice as yours!

The babies are right at 4 weeks old now, lol they are very cute, but I definitely agree that kribs in good condition are hard to find, my lfs doesn't actually carry them but I'm friends with the manager so he ordered six for me to look at, I took the only female and the dominant male home and viola, a month later babies arrive lol, I feed once a day, I mix small cichlid pellets, mediums size NLS pellets, and 6 pieces of the sinking shrimp pellets, that way they get variety and stay in good condition, there's also 9 tiger barbs with them so they are constantly chasing my barbs around lol

Not sure if anyone responded to this, but when I had my kribs, I never missed a water change, even with week old free swimmers. The mother huddles the fry into a puppy pile and they don't move while the python is in the tank. You don't ever have to adjust your cleaning schedule with krib fry in the tank.

The clean water is good for the fry, too.....

I laughed my butt off the first time I saw the puppy pile. Just shows that nature takes care of itself, if we only let it.
