    I already have
    1 African knife
    1 Leopard Ctenopoma
    and a pair of kribs.

    is there anything else that would be compatible in this tank?

    I would put some of these guys
    Haplochromis burtoni and Thoracochromis braushi They are both riverine fish.

    would a single Hemichromis bimaculatus be ok?

    i've read conflicting reports on their aggression.

    How about an African Blockhead (Steatocranus Casuarius) or a Teleogramma Brichardi for the bottom & maybe a few Butterflyfish (Pantodon Buchholzi) for the surface?

    I like the Haplochromis Burtoni. They are a nice fish.

    Jewels are pretty aggressive. I don't think it would play nice with the Knife.

    i'll check if they have any of those species in my lfs. they might have blockheads, and i remember them having butterflyfish.

    The Jewel is ok but I would put at least 2. Mkae sure they are Females so you don't have a fight with the rest of the fish if they spawn.

    I thought kribs were South American?

    I'd say move the kribs to their own 15 gallon tank. Having that whole bunch of aggressive fish around while spawning might just do them too much stress.

    Nope they are africans. Check the link.

    Whoops. Stupid me, should've looked that up. *smacks face*

    there's only two other not-so-aggressive fish with them now. The knifefish leaves everything alone, and the ctenopoma rarely ventures far from its territory
