How To Care For Your Kuhli Loaches

Hello everyone,

In my most recent film I have decided to turn the camera lens on one of the most interesting and unique freshwater fish in the hobby. The KUHLI LOACH !

These fish have some strange features and habits that make them a very entertaining addition to a community tank. They are easy to feed and peaceful.

They don't have any teeth in their mouth/jaws, so there is no danger of them nipping at your other fish! They make a great cleanup crew in the aquarium and will eat just about anything. You may not see them as much as your other fish, but when you do it will always be a treat. Kids love them ! [The film is available for viewing on youtube.]

Minimal stress then! Heat pack if necessary. (I live where it is getting cold now, but there is A/C cold too).

They are adorable and have such fun-loving personalities.
