Need some thoughts on 40 gallon breeder stock, planted tank with lots of large rock and likely a few pieces of wood and a fluval 110/sponge filter
Pair of kribs
1x Electric blue acara
10 tiger barbs
5 sterbai Cories
1 bristlenose

Would this stocking work would you do anything different instead? I don't want a ton of kribensi fry hence the barbs but also not completely sold on them or the kribs to be honest

Your stocking scheme seems pretty good to me. Looks like you've put some thought into it. :)
And, if you aren't too attached to the idea of a pair of Kribs or Tiger Barbs for this community tank?
I agree!
So, why not go full-on New World?
You could stock instead with a pair of pretty calm, Central American Amatitlania nanoluteus.

And replacing the Tiger Barbs with 8 to 10 Black Widow or Serpae Tetras, should work out pretty nice. :)
