Common Kribensis (Pelvicachromis pulcher)

February 10, 2014

These little African cichlids were feeling a little bit camera-shy today, but who isn’t on a Monday?

Originating from rivers in Africa, these little cichlids are a lot of fun to keep.  I’d recommend that you read the care sheets at Seriously Fish, if you are interested and don’t know about them yet.  Best kept in pairs, I purchased a group of 6 fry from one of the LFSs in Portland, OR.  They have finally started to pair off at about 5-6 months of age.  Their colors are amazing, and the video doesn’t do them justice.  I haven’t noticed any eggs yet, but I’m currently trying to find other aquariums for the remaining unpaired kribs.
