Can I Kuhli (coolie)?
Since I was planning my first tank, I really wanted a kuhli, but since I decided to have a planted tank, I never got any. I have since read that with enough hiding spots, they may not feel as inclined to burrow.
My tank is now established, with great readings. 30 gallon breeder, doing 5 gallon weekly changes, and my trates never go over 20-30ppm
2 dwarf gourami (1 blue, 1 flame)
11 neon tetra
8 bleeding heart tetra
1 bn pleco
I have read that I should get at least 3 kuhli if I get any, so my question is, can I afford (bioload of) this much more fish? I'm not too worried about hiding space, tank has good amount of rocks, and 2 pieces of d.w. that are very twisty, and plenty anacharis and crypts and a few other plants...
Would love some advice!
