Aquired a 30 gallon tank from my aunt who no longer wanted to have it up after 15 years. Nice stand, tank is sound, decent biowheel hob. Came with 2 Tiger Barbs, 2 Rosy Barbs, 1 Firemouth (3 inches) and 1 Featherfin Catfish (as ID'd by Nutter). I decided to add my kribs to the tank until I decide what I'm going to keep fishwise. The firemouth took exception to the additions and decided to bully my kribs. (My male krib is same size as the firemouth, I figured he would retaliate but he just acted like the firemouth wasn't there) Anyhow, I moved the firemouth to my other 30 gallon with the cory cats (where the kribs were).

Hoping krib fry will survive better in this tank as the cory cats were eating them like popcorn before. Might try my hand at cory breeding now. I'm rambling now.

Right now i still have 7 surviving krib fry that are getting pretty good sized and eating well in a 10 gallon in the basement. Not sure what I'm going to do with them yet, LFS said they would take 'em, just not sure how many I want to trade in.

Well, I've got mature albino aeneus and mature of the ones we think are axelrods. I would like to get the axelrods to spawn, only one of them is female though. She's super fat though, that's her in the picture.

Yeah if I can get them to spawn I'll probably attempt to remove the eggs to another tank to hatch. Gotta get the eggs first though.
