    I was reading up on cichlids and kribs seem to be the best "dwarf" cichlid. I was wondering what schooling fish would look nice and survive with the kribs?

    what kind of kribs? if you are talking about some of these dwarf ones that can be kept in fresh water - than you can go for any schoaling fish you want.

    Pelvicachromis pulchers or kribensis which ever way you wanna call them. Also i have a 29G tank, should i get one pair, with a schooling fish. I was thinking of something like 10 rummy nosed tetra's as they school closely and are fast swimming.

    I kept Kribs with tetra and they seem to be fine. The kribs get aggressive during spawning period so keep an eye out.

    Long time past since answer was needed... (and this is my first post on this wonderful forum/I haven`t eve introduced myself/shame on me)
    In this situation I would recomend Congo tetras (Phenacogrammus interruptus). Not from the same river, but close enough. ;)
