kuhli loach question

I've read a lot of places online that have different tank size requirements for loaches. But I was wondering if it would be safe to have one in a 10 gallon tank.

They need buddies. So 1 wouldn't work. What kind of substrate. Well rounded pebbles will work. What is your current stock?

I have live plants with plant substrate. It's a little rough, that's another thing I was worried about. I was told by a friend who has a little larger tank than I do that they are great for 10 gallons. Currently I have a baby Pleco and Harlequin razboras (5 of them)

Should be fine. 3-5. Keep an eye on the plec as it gets older. They get big
