Found in Indonesia and Malaysia, The Kuhlii Loach generally grows to 11cm and can live for up to 10 years. The Kuhlii Loach is a small eel-like fish. They are brown in colour and have pale yellow vertical lines down the body. They have barbells surrounding their mouths which are used to find food in gravel and hard to reach places.
Kuhlii loaches are a perfect addition to any tank and are fast enough to evade attacks from larger more aggressive fish. They do better in tanks with lots of hiding places with a soft substrate, and for this reason they can be hard to find once you have put them in.
Kuhlii loaches are omnivorous and a scavenger fish that will eat left-over food on the bottom of the tank and in amongst the gravel and sand. For this reason they are easily fed on food like flakes, pellets and enjoy eating frozen food such as bloodworm. They also feed ferociously on live foods like brine and live worm.
