Do black Kuhli Loaches feel comfortable w/ tiger stripped ones?

The reason i ask, is because i have 4 tiger stripped ones and 1 black one. The black one from what ive seen is always by itself and the only one doing crazy circles along the glass (wide circles, not from internal parasites i think).

Maybe it needs to feel comfortable with its black friends?

I've kept them with regular kuhli loaches and they seemed fine.

I believe they are the sea species so they should be fine but sometimes morphology plays a part in social behaviors and they might not recognize each other as the same type. Albino corys will not school with bronze corys (The same species) simply because of pigmenting I believe.

Very interesting about the corys. Ive would of thought they would get along since there seems to be so many different variations. Then again albino's probably arnt really a natural species group

That also seems a bit better with the extra black one aswell. I'll probably get 1 more black one. Thanks.

They'll still get along but their natural behaviors won't be exhibited.In respect to the albino fish they would not be a natural group as it is hugely un advantageous.
