Looks nice,I would add more plants and maybe some rocks to break up the line of sight and to add more hiding places, do you plan on breeding them or just keeping one?

The tank looks nice !
I would add some more cover for the male on the opposite side of the cave where she will take up nest !

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.

If you look at the botton leaf of the amazon sword in the front of the tank in the previous picture you can see it is covered in algae. Well one of my mystery snails already got most of it off.

I got some more pics. The female krib is also moving sustrate out of the cave, does this mean she is getting ready to breed?

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 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.

Sounds like you have eggs or will soon. How are they doing now?
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.

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
