    Hello all the lovely fishy people
    I have recently had neon tetra desease and I have now got 0 neons after mass euthanization very sad but because of it I had no q tank now I had to move fish over to my other tabk to avoid infection so I have ended up with angels and Kribs and a shark together this was never my intention what I'm wandering is the Kribs will go back to the other tank as I had them with the shark but he ate there babies non of the fish have been aggressive to each other in the same 240 litre tank with a few live bearers there all peaceful fish I spend a lot of time picking my fish trying to get the least aggressive in the tabk at the aquatic centre ie watch em for a bit see which ones bully others and take the ones who don't seem to bully any seems to work for me I want to leave the shark and the angels together but can I keep discus with My 2 Kribs as they don't go for anything unless it goes in there hole and a discus wouldn't get in there cave I built the hole in is to small so would this be possible discus and 2 Kribs I'd get a few discus obviously as I have read up on them and wondering if anyone's had success with this having more docile aggressive type fish

    I’d definitely say no to Kribs with Discus.

    A very well versed friend maintained a large group of Kribs with approx 8 large Discus in a 180g tank with absolutely no issue, In fact, used a spiney eel to help control the Krib population. My personal experience is similar, large group of Kribs in a 75g with Angels ........ absolutely no issues. YMMV
