I have a pair of kribensis in my 60 litre tank (15.9 gallon). I am going to purchase some dither fish for them, to keep them active. What type of fish and how many would be okay in my tank.
Thanks! :)

To be honest, I think they will kill anything in a tank that size. If it was a taller tank, like a 20 gallon tall, you might get away with some surface dwellers, but in a tank like this, I don't think it will work.

I do have a lot of hiding places and decorations. I was thinking of adding dither fish because i wanted to even out the aggressiveness of the male towards the female.

Still... the tank is too small. If you have an aggressive fish, a 15 gallon is going to be a challenge.

Kribs won't be overly aggressive to their mate. They pair up and will fend off anything that comes near their spawning area.

You could probably add some white-clouds, etc. They'll be happy near the top of the tank away from the kribs.
