Albino Kribensis Cichlid (Pelvicachromis pulcher) CareSheet
The Albino Kribensis Cichlid is a Western African species that has been carefully developed from the Kribensis Cichlid
. They are pink in hue, with a crimson belly on the females during spawning. It's one of the smallest African Cichlids, and it's also known as a dwarf Cichlid.
The Albino Kribensis Cichlid should be housed in a 50-gallon or bigger aquarium with lots of rocks and caves to give enough hiding places for these territorial fish.
Because of the bright red that the albino female shows during breeding, male Kribensis, whether full coloring or albino, are generally more attracted to the albino female. They are a substrate spawning species, and in order to spawn, they will clean an area inside the substrate. Feed young brine shrimp and finely crushed flake food to the fry.
The Albino Kribensis should be fed a diet that is largely vegetable-based, with some meaty things thrown in for good measure. Feed using a high-quality vegetable-based flake food
, algae, and other African Cichlid-specific meals.
