The Kuhli Loach (Pangio Kuhli) is a bottom dwelling peaceful fish originally from Indonesia.  They are marked by their yellow and black stripes, but are sometimes confused with other striped Loaches. They look a bit like miniature eels or snakes, and are known for having a lot of personality when they are out and about.


Kuhli Loaches are shy fish and need plenty of hiding places.  They are also extremely social with their own species and require at least 3 other Kuhli loaches in the same tank, but are usually thought to do best in groups of 6 or more.  They get along well with other non-aggressive fish and can be kept with a wide variety of tank mates. These fish do better in an established cycled tank and they prefer a PH of 6.2-6.8 and temps of 78-82 degrees Fahrenheit. They max out around 4 inches when fully grown.


 Kuhli Loaches are easy to feed. Unlike other Loaches they do not eat snails, but they are not picky and will take algae wafers, frozen bloodworms, and tiny live foods along with other prepared fish foods. The only major difference between the males and females is the fatter body of the female loach, especially when she is loaded with eggs.  Kuhli Loaches may be bred in the freshwater aquarium.  These guys are expert hiders, but they have a really entertaining personality when they are feeling comfortable and well cared for.
