Last year I allowed myself to get overrun with kribs..when I finished pulling my hair out and my kribs were all gone, I realized I needed to get some kribs. So yesterday I bought some P. T. Molowies. Has anyone had these? A quick conversation with seller made me feel safer about water conditions,..his very similar to mine, and I have food on hand he says he has been feeding. I'm just trying to make sure I'm not overlooking something. I was pretty experienced with P. Pulcher, but never had P. Tanaetus Molowie. Advice, please?

I bought some taenies last year and they were beautiful. They're like kribs in their requirements but their temperament was much more aggressive. I had put three pairs of sub-adults in a heavily planted 55gal hoping to put pairs in one of the many tanks I had set up, once the breeding pairs formed. Unfortunately one of the females killed the other five so I took her back to the lfs and didn't try them again.

Whew..you got a mean one! Hope I can stop that in time. I bought six..looking to do similar thing,..if I get one nice pair, I'll likely look to rehome most of the rest. Would you be interested?

Thanks, but no. Since I tried them I got rid of all but one tank and I'm keeping gobies and hillstreams in it.
You should have no trouble rehoming them as they're gorgeous little fish.
