	I have the same situation. Its very frustrating.. Mine is a male.
And he spends all day at the back of the tank.. I gave him a mate..
He _didn't_ like it better. Lets just say I'm back down to 1 krib. :(
Recently he seems to have started to redecorate my tank.. Plants pulled
up, gravel piled up to block the entrance to flower pot caves.. Not
behaviour I would expect from him, but it can't be anyone else in the tank.
I think I might try to get him another mate, but I would hate to just keep
sending female kribs to the slaughter..
