all you have to do now is get the ring size seat to watch them choose their caves now,
then hopefully a few weeks later you might have many wrigglers... lol

Hiya
Great move making your own caves, got a photo??
Good move to be rid of those sharks, they are not shy about predating on eggs or fry..

I recently got rid of my tiger barbs, cherry barbs, red tailed shark, large sucking loach, 2 large synodontis, 2 smaller synodontis and two black widow tetras.... to turn my tank into a bristlenose breeding tank

Haha! my tank looks eeempppty now!

Do you have any pictures of your caves? I got 4 slate caves from ebay and made my own coconut caves but the kribs seem to prefer those more than the BN do =/
