Hey guys
All was well in the mom and dad krib tank.
Was
They were fine when I fed them this morning but when I checked on them a little bit ago Mom was at the top near death.
She is so weak I was able to scoop her up with my hand.
I have her in the breeder net for protection cause as soon as she swam down dad was after her.
I know Im supposed to be the krib expert here but Im at a loss.
I tested the water and Nitrates were a little high so did a water change.
Is this common?
Upset mom here

I thought all the babies were gone but when I switched off the light to lessen stress there they were

Im so sorry to hear that GG 馃槹, i hope things have picked up since placing her in the breeder.
When i read your post i thought to myself, GG knows what she's doing, there's got to be something else going on here.
Looked on the net and there are quite a lot of forum posts from people who have had this happen and are completely stumped...and no-one seems to know the reason for it.
Someone needs to study this and try to find out what's actually happening.
A guy did exactally that with cory deaths and found out they have the ability to "self poison". Up until then, it was a complete mystery, as this Kribensis thing is....lets hope someone takes the initiative.

Thanks for your kind words. She actually ate a couple worms I put in there. I'm crossing my fingers and hope she makes it. If so he is going to be banished to the ten. I'll put her with alllllll the babies and he can suck mud.
Definitely going to look into this.

Youre welcome GG.
If she's eating that's GREAT news...she's a battler which is a huge bonus.
Putting her with her babies is probably a good idea at the moment as it may just stop any further decline.
Sounds like the male has earned himself "the box".
P.Smurf ended up in "the box" but he is now redeeming himself beyond expectations...the box works lol.
Lol...I like it. To the box with you swine pig dog.
Methinks if she is hanging in tomorrow I will catch him and let her out with the babies.
Of course I have a dr appt tomorrow, hate this doctor...
But its semi early so I'll have time to do what needs to be done.
They seemed so in love, gentle nudges, side by side then this.
Baffled I am
He's definitely on my S list

Doctors urrgghh no thanks.
Fish behaviour can seem so shocking at times, its really hard to understand.
One minute its heaven, the next minute all hell has broken loose.
hehehe, the S list...fitting for a little turd : )
We wont mention the dr save to say I left him alive.
Good news! Mom is well recovered. She ate and showed some spunk soooo
Dad is removed to the 10 with his juvenile offspring. I hope they pester him non stop.
Mom is with her newborns in the 20 and is looking good. I decided to leave her with just the little ones rather than putting the juveniles in to. Will be less stress for her.
Peace reigns
Hopefully dad wont bully the juveniles. So far so good

Oooooo youve got a Carpet Krib...they're extremely rare because they have a very short life span 馃榿

Speaking of Hari-Kari Fish - A couple of days ago, i slid the top glass back to adjust the spray bar and suddenly a scissortail shot out of the tank, bounced off the light and landed on the glass right in front of me. I nudged him back into the tank and the silly thing looked like it was going to do it again, so i closed the lid really quickly.
Starting to make me paranoid when opening the top glass lol.
Thats funny you said that. The blue girls do a little leap when I open my glass top.
They are growing on me and so much mellower with that third bully gone.
The mommy is doing great. Dad's lurking in the ten. He takes a run at the babies but they are to fast and to many. The babies are doing their harassment job very well. Hehe
