I love dwarf loaches, but they are very rambunctious! Lol. I'd go 8 of each.
Or 6 dwarf loaches, 5 albino cories and 5 of another type of cory.

Dwarf loaches are very expensive by me so I went with the kuhli loaches they where cheap and looked cool and with an age range from 10+ and known of some 60+ years can't go wrong

So I got my 5 peppered corys today. They're loving their new home. But ones just hiding in a rock cave. I may have got two partners as they tend to stick together and the one hiding is just a third wheel haha

Where did you see a kuhli loach living 60 years ? Though they do live long, if cared for. I had one last 11 years way back when. But 60 ? Be interested to see that.

When I first researched them I saw it in the Wikipedia for kuhli loaches ( http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuhli_Loach) and my friend has a 20+ year old kuhli so I believe it

Ten years is about right. I'll bet you won't find a credible source that corroborates a lifespan of 60 years.

They can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true.
