The Kribensis Cichlid, also known as the rainbow cichlid, is a popular choice for aquariums due to its vibrant coloration and peaceful nature. They are ideally kept in a 50-gallon or larger aquarium, and should be provided with plenty of rocks and caves to facilitate spawning. Male Kribensis, regardless of coloration, are often more attracted to the albino female due to the intense red hues she displays during breeding. To feed the fry, baby brine shrimp and finely ground flake food are both suitable options. Kribensis Cichlids are hardy and long-lived, making them an excellent choice for aquarists of all experience levels.

The Kribensis is a species of African Cichlid that requires a diet consisting mainly of vegetables, with occasional meaty type foods. High quality vegetable-based flake food, algae, and other food specifically designed for African Cichlids should be included in their diet. To ensure the highest level of health and nutrition, it is important to provide a variety of food sources. Additionally, regular water changes should be performed to provide a clean and balanced environment for your Kribensis.

The approximate purchase size for this type of air filter is between 3/4″ and 1- 3/4″.
