I am thinking about getting some to put in with an angel pair. Normally I would not mix cichlids from other regions, but my reading has shown me that this combination is an exception to that rule. Just google their scientific name, and you should have all the info you need.

What do I feed newly hatched Kribs?

I read that powdered fish flakes is fine. Does that mean that I need to crush the flakes to small pieces or is that a separate food product? I think that there were originally about 50 in the fry and now there about 30. I hope they're not dying from hunger. Appreciate any help in this.

They grow better and faster with fry powdered food.
Krib are fine with other fish until they breed. I had mine in with angels last year...as soon as they bred I had to take the angels out. They got aggressive, especially mom who tore dad caudal fin right off. He later died of an infection from that attack. They were in a 50 gallon at the time.
