Kuhli's have a pretty small bioload, and don't need a ton of swimming space. Some people might disagree but with no other bottom dwellers I think you're fine to keep a school of kuhlis, definitely no less than 6 or else you'll never see them (they'll hide). Also take note that they're nocturnal, so if they hide during the day it's because they feel safer when it's dark

Oh they get that big? I thought they were like 2 inchers lol but it should still be ok if you wanted instead you could bump the kuhlis to 15-20 and leave the botias at 5. Either way.
