Kribensis Cichlids or often referred to as Rainbow Kribs, are peaceful and relatively easy to care for. Their unique colour pattern will give any suitable aquarium a rainbow colour addition. While many fish in the Cichlid family are notorious for being bullies, that’s not the case with the Kribensis Cichlid. They are a peaceful dwarf species that does well in community environments. The most identifying feature for females is the reddish pink belly. This red belly becomes more vibrant during the breeding season. While males don’t have the pink hue, they do have some interesting fins. Males have long and pointed fins. The dorsal fin, in particular, is curved to a dramatic point towards the back of the body. For males and females, the dorsal and tail fins are edged in yellow and red.
