(Cardiff) Free Kribensis

If there's anyone in Cardiff with a fish tank I have 2 adult breeding pairs of Kribensis. I have 3 pairs in my tank, and only the dominant pair is able to breed. Give these guys a cave, and some plants, and they will breed for you.. as long as they are the dominant pair in the community. I get around 50fry every 2 months, which rarely survive, due to being in a tank with rainbowfish who tend to eat them. If in a tank of their own or with small fish, they could probably rear them.

Anyway, like I said I have 2 pairs that are free to a good home, ie. someone with a tropical fish tank.They are not large fish, I keep them in a community without much trouble - but you do need space for them in a community tank, as they are territorial and will very jealously guard their cave. They do need a dark cave to feel comfortable and to breed, something they can slip inside.

I can deliver locally across Cardiff free of charge or welcome to come and collect.

Giving away due to no fault of their own - simply that my dominant pair needs more space and less stress and the other 2 pairs are not being let in the cave or getting any love, aww bless.

I know it's probably not the best place to list them but figured I'd give it a shot - you never know.

They are very pretty, and wonderful to watch, intense mating displays, very interactive with each other, with the community, very jealous, guarding displays and the parents actually attempt to rear the fry.. seeing 2 adults herding around a shoal of 50 pin-sized fish and guarding them protectively is fascinating.

They don't need a lot of space, I just seem to have one very dominant pair who won't let the others into the house, or even have fun with each other :oops: if you know what I mean.

They're probably just grumpy because my Rainbowfish keeps eating all their young :roll: but I would love to see the other 2 pairs go to good homes, either together or in 2 seperate pairs.

I had a goldfish named Sharkey who was completely hostile to any other fish in "his" tank..he didn't actually murder his colleagues he just made their lives absolute hell by constantly chasing them and preventing them from feeding so they eventually died..so in the end he lived in solitary....he lasted 18 years..I don't know anything about fish but guess that's a good innings?

Talking about age of Fish, I kept my Goldfish for 8 years, which I think is pretty good? He died because we went on Holiday and couldn't feed him as we usually did. I bet he'd still be here today if we didn't go!

if no one on here wants them you might get someone who will take them from you on http://www.fishforums.net/:)

That's cruel MattC..we used to leave ours with a neighbour when we went away..talking of cruelty a friend of mine, when in his early teens, fed his goldfish to the cat because he couldn't find any catfood in the house and got fed up of the mewling...now that is really cruel.
