 Although they are peaceful fish, they may nip the fins of slow-moving fish such as angels. If other cichlids are to live in the tank, choose a species that is not bottom-dwelling so they won't compete for the same territory. Avoid keeping them with another cave-dwelling species, as kribensis are territorial about caves.
