No I forgot what I did with them. I might have moved them to my pond to see if they would breed or I might have shared them

Wow. Moved them to your pond?! They would've froze to death. Lol.

Okay. Kuhli loaches seem to very cool. I have want some for the past couple years and I switched my tank over from an African Cichlid tank a couple months ago. They wouldn't stop breeding and the tank got overpopulated. So I decided to get a peaceful community tank. My only concern about having Kuhli loaches is that I've heard that they can get scratched up by gravel. This is my current gravel http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...87&pcatid=9087
Do you think there would be any issue?

Which one did you get? The fine grained or coarse grained? The fine grained should definitely be fine. The black coarse grain should be ok too as long as there aren't too many large pieces. Sand is the best thing to use but this looks ok. Is it as hard as gravel or is it more flexible like sand/dirt?

It should be ok then. As long as the pieces don't have sharp edges. Fine grained is definitely ok.
