Not All "Agressive" Fish Are Agressive
Quickly I researched these little fish labeled as "Kribensis" and discovered they are a type of African Cichlid. My heart began to sink as I recalled all my previous research about cichlids which are typically aggressive fish and therefore poor tankmates for my peaceful Tetras and Australian Rainbows. However, sometimes it pays to research a little deeper. Upon more reading I began to uncover reports of people successfully keeping Kribensis, otherwise known as Dwarf Rainbow Cichlids, in peaceful community aquariums such as mine. As it turns out, these "aggressive fish" are actually fairly shy so I bought two babies, one male and one female, and brought them home for my tank.
