any one know if these fish (kribs and rams) can get along.

also if any of these fish have compatability issues. with plecs, violet gobys, corys,loaches and a bunch of catfishes. these are my bottom dewiling fish that hide in in the drift wood alot. and i heard rams and kribs somtimes chooses a cave to call theres and defend it.

im getting a second hand 200g give or take. dont know the actual gallon size because my uncle forgot what size it is. and it still has to be resealed and cleaned and stand varnised. but hopfully i can get it to the point i can see through one side. it has alot of weather damage from being outdoors

and want to put all my fishes in my 55g into this tank. but also want to fill it with more fishes.

my plans right now are depends on what fishes my local fishe store has.
and they have golden and bolivian rams, aswell as kribs.

I think a +/- 200 gal tank has enough area and capacity for hiding places that both would get along just great. In a smaller tank, the Kribs could rip the Rams to pieces, but that's because they would consider the whole tank their territory. In a large tank, there will be more fish to chase around, so the stress is somewhat distributed.

Also, make sure you click on the Search button, and type Kribs + Rams into the box, and read all the other threads that deal with this issue :mrgreen:
