Gah! It would be better to let the stressed one be. Take the healthier one out. this way, the stressed is left unstressed and new territories are made by the stressed.

Hi, Jingles, what you say makes sense, but what if he puts a male in there?! Could be more stress, at least at first?

The last angel died this morning, Craigo. Thanks for asking. And the owner of the lfs won't talk to me. (See that post ...)

hey guys,

right ive done it.

in the end i decided top catch the fragile female(easier than i tought, she was in a cave a lot since the segregation, i just adjusted it into the net, not a lot of fuss really....:) )

i think it was prob the right idea, the other is sooo confident in the tank.

im getting a male(fingers crossed;) ) on friday -- im looking for a pointy tail and dorsal fin then???

(the people at my lfs HATE it when you ask for a specific fish -- like its too much bother.......):rolleyes:

ill keep you posted,
thanks.

Yeah, they're like that at most lfs I've been too, also, at least around here. It's too bad.

I hope there will be lots of kribs in the tank to give you a basis for comparison, because it's not that easy to tell sometimes, especially if they're still juveniles. But ... look for a krib whose yellow color at the very top of the dorsal fin runs all the way to the end, and who also has a spade- or diamond-shaped tail.

Good luck!

Pat

What's the minimum tank size you recommend for a Krib?

eh...I would say a 20 for a pair. Kribs get around 3 or 4 inches. 20gallons especilly if you are keeping other fish. I kept mine in a 30 and they were happy.
