Kribs sex ratio determination?

I have a new spawn of kribs and was wondering if there are environmental sex determination factors I shluld be aware of, as in some apistos.

I know of no scientific studies regarding environmental effects on sex determination of Kribs. There are anecdotal claims that sex is determined by pH, but it hasn't been proven by controlled experiments of which I am aware.

Well...my educated guess would be maybe temperature...there are studies on Killi and Cichlids that this certainly hasan influence.
