hello everyone at fishlore sorry i ain't been in touch but its the busiest month of the year for me in my shop now just a quickie about the beautiful fish we have 3 kribs in our tank and they have just started breeding.

since buying the fish we have lost about six other smaller fish mainly neon tetras what I'm asking is will the kribs kill the smaller fish if they go near there cave or do they just fancy a treat for tea this is working out to be expensive replacingthe eaten fish ??

thanks guys

Most Cichlids when spawning and guarding eggs or fry will attack and kill other fish. I'm sure once dead there are other things in the tank that will clean them up
