Post by dene.h. on 22/12/2011, 01:31

hi all thought id just post and let you all know that i am in debait with myself to set up a new tank haha since i am only young and hav only had fish for lets say nearly 2 years now i am thinking that it may be time to set up another tank and i just love dwarf cichlids, as some of you may know i used to keep and breed litle kribs until unfortunatly they died Sad so i have decided in the next couple of weeks after crimbo i am goin to set up a new aquarium nothing too fancy tho as i have a 2ft tank already set up with my german blue rams and dont have alot of space so i am thinking just a nice 1.6ft tank x1x1 shud do just nicely and get some more kribs i have been looking around at some on the internet and i realy like the look of yellow rock kribs so i think i might see about getting some of them when i get sorted with a new set up.

Teesside Koi have some albino kribs which i like the look of and maybe buy in the new year. It's funny how you have kept kribs because it's something I've been drawn to every time i go into an aquatic shop. I used to keep and breed kribs myself.
18 x 12 x12 is a good size for a pair like. But to grow the youngsters on unfortunately you will need another tank.

some times its better to seperate fry from the parants as you will find you will get a better survive rate
