Moving Krib fry question


So the parents aren't watching them anymore and they're feeding and roaming on their own. They are still quite small and the parents look like they're getting ready for another brood. The only tank I have that I can possiblely put them in is a 10g with AB pleco's, who are about 2" maybe a bit bigger. Would the pleco's eat them? I know they like algae and zuchinni but would they go for the little guys? That's why I was procrastinating so long about putting them in here.

I have not kept kribs but knowing plecos and seeing them with my endlers and other livebearer fry, i'd say it would be safe to house with plecos. Of course i'd see if Patrice, flo or others who have reared kribs chime in.

Thanks Albert, got something going on here right now. I'll email Flo or Patrice later this week.

Plecos are quite peaceful, actually Bonnie, I still have your 2 babies BN, they are about 2" now, they share the tank with pygmies cories and are not interested in eating them at all. So I don't think they would go for baby kribs.

I would leave them where they are right now, but be prepared to move them to the 10g at the first sign of aggression from the parents (you will see, they will start chasing them off just like they would do with any other fish).
