Absolutely love the way the tank looks! Layout is perfect! Beautiful little kribs! Excited to see if they breed soon!Alright I added some more java moss and added a amazon sword to help break up the line of sight unfortunately the sword does not look very asthetic due to some kind of algae on some of the leaves but hopfully the mystery snails will clear that up like they have been as you can see in the last picture.View attachment 584764 View attachment 584767 View attachment 584768
I think you are right she might be getting ready to breed. She has been pushing substrate out of the cave and has all of the sudden become agresive to the mystery snails when they come near the caves.She sure looks all colored up and full ?
I believe I even see her ovipositor in pic !
Eggs very soon !
I hope they are great parents for you !
They are so much fun to watch with the cloud following them around ..
I went on vacation for a while so I did not able to update. When I got back it looked as if the female had been beating up the male so I Separated him into a breeding net and he looks to be getting better. The female discovered he was in the breeding net so now she hangs out under it and does the krib shimmy.Sounds like you have eggs or will soon. How are they doing now?
the thing is they have not bred yet.If you can put him in another tank for a week or two and let him rebuild his strength, after you reintroduce him I would watch close, I have had the female kill the male after breeding and vice versa, you may need to relocate him to his own tank for awhile. Good luck
