Kribensis eating their fry every time

Recommended Posts

I've had a breeding pair of kribs for about 6 months in my 2 foot tank. Every month or so when their fry hatch the mother looks after them for about 2 - 3 days then seems to lose interest and i've witnessed her eat & swallow them on a couple occasions (not just putting them in her mouth to move/protect them as she does in the first couple days).

Has anyone else encountered this? I may try moving the fry to a seperate tank next time.

Kribs can be really good parents or really bad. I have found dithers work well with kribs. Dithers are fish put in the tan for the fish to chase - typically something that looks like a threat but isn't really.

YES... & I hate it when ANY fishy parents eat their own fry.. :irked: so frustrating.

I would actually move the parents to a new tank rather than the fry.

Well that's what I do with the canibal parents I've encountered ;)
