My Kribs..now parents..

    Well I got a "pair" and turned out to be two females, so I threw in a male, one girl decided she wanted blood and tried to kill them both. I took out the aggressive one (Very loose term, now I see all Kribs are "aggressive"). About 3 weeks later my wife watched them spawn and a few days later I saw these little guys swimming around..Im pretty excited, the tank was set up to be ideal for them to breed and it is working great so far...Planning to move them into a 10g temp home once Mom gets sick of them..First two pics are from the first day I found them free swimming in the tank, the last is from about 5 days after that.

    Thanks for the compliments, some of the pics the wife took...the digital rebel does wonders over old school digital's that could barely focus through glass

    Heres a more recent one from a few days ago, about 12 days old (at my best guess, from free swimming stage) Their momma was keeping a close eye on me.

    I have not mailed fish before but that might be something I could look into once they are bigger...message me and we'll talk about it some.

    I also have 5 white clouds in the tank to act as dither fish, but pose no true threat to the eggs or fry, seems to be working great so far.
