Hey everyone, i'm looking to buy some kribs. My LFS offers them, but whoever their distributor is sucks. They always come in with about 5 males per bag so they're always tore up from fighting. Not to mention, none of them are very attractive either. I'm looking to buy some online, preferably a pair (proven would be +1) that look nice. Looking for some that are quite yellow, males with tail spots, etc etc.

Anyone know a breeder, any online websites? Hell even if someone here on the boards is looking to get rid of a pair that would be awesome.

I have a male and female but it doesn't appear that they are even remotely interested in pairing up, the male always chases the female away. I've even tried adding other females which just end up dead between the male and female chasing her off.

It would sound as if they're paired.. but they certainly don't seem like it with the way he chases her around.


Anyway.. any ideas?

InvertzFactory.com has some Pelvichromis taeniatus 'Nigerian Red' which are cousins to what you are looking for plus you don't see these as often. These like very nice to me. They are at the very bottom of the stock list.
