Kribensis Cichlid, also known as Pelvicachromis pulcher or simply Krib, is perhaps the most popular African cichlid in the hobby. It is a colorful fish with yellowish, reddish to pinkish accents on a ligh-colored body with a horizontal black stripe running the length of its body. The female, especially when breeding, will develop a rounded belly and exhibit a particularly striking reddish/pinkish belly patch.
Care Guide for Kribensis
Kribensis Cichlid occurs in forested small streams and rivers in Nigeria. They are peaceful toward other species but can be somewhat territorial - or protective - during breeding time. They are easy and good beginner cichlids. Their small size makes them ideal cichlids for small aquariums, housing other small and peaceful fish such as tetras, rasboras, barbs or even guppies.
