I have a pair of Kribs in my tank, and want some suggestions for Dwarf Cichlids to add to it, any suggestions? I have been told that Apisto's don't mix well with Kribs, is this correct?

How big's the tank?

Each species will need a minimum of 18" IME so unless it's over 3ft I wouldn't do it. Pair forming Apistos such as A.nijsenni might be ok but larger, pair-forming dwarfs might be better. I've got a pair of P.taeniatus with a Steatocranus tinanti and that works ok at the moment, but long term the Steatocranus is too dominant and she's a female on her own!
