Will yellow kribs breed with regular kribs? I just found out that my yellow krib is a female and I have a regular krib that is a male and was wondering if they will mate. I don't really want to breed. Should I just trade
for a different sex???


2 Kribs
2 bolivian rams
2 blue rams
1 curvicep
5 dwarf rainbows
1 clown pleco
29g long

I dunno, what is the latin name for the "yellow krib". Sorry I've been looking all over for it. My sister has some and I'm trying to figure out if it is a Pelvicachromis subocellatus, Pelvicachromis sp. aff. subocellatus, or just a hybrid of an albino and a regular Pelvicachromis Pulcher.

If they are both Pulcher they can breed, if not I don't think they will. Rolling Eyes But if you ever do have fry just find a local club and give them to people for free. Suprisingly these people will be happy to take anything for free! Razz

I have an albino krib (pulcher) that was given to me by a friend. It has red eyes, is yellow in color, except for the purple belly. I know I read somewhere that not only will they breed with regular kribs but that the regular males prefer the albino females, possibly because the purple belly shows up in greater contrast on the albino females compared to their own kind.
