They do great with cory. One of mine occasionally sleeps against a large emerald cory. Ive neer had a problem.

I do have to disagree about never seeing them. i have three in my tank and they are very active. I see them all the time. If they feels safe you will see them. When mine get grumpy hey hide in a coconut shell. Someone on the dui recommended i cut a cave out of a coconut for a bigger fish. With the leftover top of the coconut, i just dropped it in for decor, but the loaches love squeezing between the natural occurring holes in the top. They're the only ones who can fit into that nest!

And I am glad you brought this to the top! I am getting 5 this weekend for my tank

Had anyone experienced their kuhlies escaping or going into their filters? I have a fluval 306 canister, should I be worried about the kuhlies attempting to swim into the output hose due to the current? 2

I have a 30 long tank currently going through cycling and i am deciding what to put in it. I want a community tank with an oddball twist to it (like an eel shaped fish) and it seems Kuhli is the way to go. Everything ive read online says they like waters anywhere between 75-85 and ph from 6-7, so in my tank i was planning on mid-high 70's temperature wise and around 7 ph wise, my questions are: is a 30 long tank fine for 3-4 kuhli loaches plus some small fish (tetras or possibly glass catfish or etc.) and is the combination of mid-high 70's plus a ph around 7 fine or is it cutting it a little close for their comfort zones?

What's your pH currently? It's a phenomenally ridiculous undertaking to try to goof with pH. My pH is consistently around 7.6, and that's just what it is. 🙄

I have black kuhli and striped kuhli at 7.6, they're fine pH is critical for things like discus and the high pH 8+ guys, but not so much with these guys I would skip tinkering with the pH in this case.
