The Kuhli Loach is a peaceful freshwater fish that is very slender and closely resembles an eel.

 

If you are as fascinated by eels as we are, but are limited on space in your aquarium, than this is the fish for you! This beautiful loach could easily be mistaken for an eel due to the translucence of its fins, yet it will never grow too large for a home aquarium. They come from tropical climates, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Java and surrounding areas. The Kuhli Loach is a truly elegant swimmer, its movement resembling a snake's slithering dance. These fish have gorgeous coloration - they are mostly a deep burgundy with bright gold bands encircling the body.


These are nocturnal creatures and they like to hide when the lights are on, so plant or rock cover is important. They also prefer sand substrate, as it's easy for them to burrow in it. They are bottom-dwelling scavengers and will eat food and waste that sinks to the bottom of the aquarium.  They are very peaceful and totally safe to keep with other fish (as long as the other fish are peaceful too!), snails, shrimp, and live plants.  This particular loach is perfect for home aquariums, as they never grow more than 3 to 5 inches in length.

 

RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS:
  • pH level range: 6.0 - 7.0
  • Temperature range: 75° - 85° F (24° - 29° C)
  • Water type: Medium-soft to medium
  • Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other peaceful fish (such as Danios, hillstream loaches etc.), snails (such as Mystery Snails, Sulawesi Snails, Nerite Snails, etc.), dwarf shrimp (such as Sakura Red Cherry Shrimp, Bee Shrimp, etc.)
  • Additional notes: Kuhli Loaches are scavengers, so they will eat leftover fish food, but they will also go for freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, as well as frozen and live foods. They prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants for cover (such as java moss, hairgrass, green cabomba, etc.).
