Specifications

Overview

The Kribensis Cichlid, which originated from Western Africa is tank-raised and is one of the easier African Cichlids to breed. They have an elongated shape and are black in color with a yellow stripe and red belly.

The belly takes on a more vivid red coloration during times of breeding. This is one of the smaller African Cichlids, and is often referred to as a dwarf Cichlid.

The Kribensis Cichlid is ideally kept in a 100 litre or larger aquarium decorated with plenty of rocks and caves in order to provide adequate hiding places for these territorial fish.

Male Kribensis, whether full coloration or albino, are often more attracted to the albino female because of the intense red that the albino female displays during breeding. They are a substrate spawning species, and will clear an area within the substrate in order to spawn.

Feed the fry baby brine shrimp and finely ground flake food. The Kribensis should be given a diet containing mostly vegetable-based foods, supplemented with meaty type foods. Feed with a quality vegetable-based flake food, algae, and other foods designed for African Cichlids.
