overviewThe Albino Kribensis Cichlid has been selectively bred from the Kribensis Cichlid and it originated from Western Africa. They are pink in color and the females gain a red belly during times of spawning. This is one of the smaller African Cichlids, and is often referred to as a dwarf Cichlid.
The Albino Kribensis Cichlid is ideally kept in a 50-gallon or larger aquarium decorated with plenty of rocks and caves in order to provide adequate hiding places for these territorial fish.
Male Kribensis, whether full coloration or albino, are often more attracted to the albino female because of the intense red that the albino female displays during breeding. They are a substrate spawning species, and will clear an area within the substrate in order to spawn. Feed the fry baby brine shrimp and finely ground flake food.
The Albino Kribensis should be given a diet containing mostly vegetable-based foods, supplemented with meaty type foods. Feed with a quality vegetable-based flake food, algae, and other foods designed for African Cichlids.
