    I'd go with the Danios. Although to be honest I never found that I needed to add dither fish with my Kribs....they just bred and bred and bred and bred and were always out and about.

    yep, danios are a good choice but also consider some white clouds, scissortails or rainbows...

    Rescued 4 rummy nose tetra's from N1City Tropicum this morning... I would have bought more but alas they were the last... you could hardly see the red on their noses in the shop. 10 minutes in my tank and they're glowing like Christmas tree's :D . Paid R13.50 each. Awesome little fishies...

    Nice price for the Rummy noses there Kribs!!!! :) Yip, they tend to be a little 'dull' when they are in bare-bottom tanks don't they?

    Those prices are so cheap! My LPS had rummy noses for R43 each!! Told them they were mad and I would find some elsewhere.
