Fibby (F/reddie + G/ibby) is the pairing of Freddie Benson and Gibby Gibson. Another name commonly used is Fribby (Fr/eddie + G/ibby). Fibby can also be termed as Geddie (Fr/eddie + G/ibby), but it's rarely used in this fanbase. Freddie and Gibby have shown to get along rather well. This pairing probably will not happen as a romantic pairing, because Nickelodeon is a children's/teens' network. This ship is mostly supported as a friendship; however, there are some shippers who ship the two as a romantic couple.
In iEnrage Gibby, their friendship was in danger after Gibby thought he saw Freddie "macking on" his girlfriend, Tasha. The issue quickly was ruled as a huge misunderstanding. Other than that, they are shown to be really good friends. They are shown to be extremely close in the final season of the show, as they are seen constantly hanging out together and interacting.
