The Black Kuhli Loach is a great addition to a tropical freshwater aquarium. They do not like a fast flowing current so keep the water movement minimal at the bottom of the tank to keep these little guys happy.


Actual size: 4-5cm

  • Maximum size: 8cm
  • Origin: Indonesia
  • Ideal number kept together: 5+

    Water conditions
    pH: 5.0-7.0
    Temperature: 23–26 °C

    Ease of care
    Easy. They are great for a nano aquarium as they stay small. Sand is needed for Kuhli Loach along with a good filter and pump system for good water conditions. A tight fitting lid is necessary as they can jump out of the water when they feel threatened.
    Mainly sinking pellets however they can also have live or frozen foods.
    Peaceful, community aquarium. They live well with tank mates such as Tetras, Rasbora, Livebearers, etc of similar size. They like a planted aquarium with hiding places. The Kuhli Loach is more active when in a larger group so they feel less threatened.
    Breeding/ Sex
    Unknown in home aquaria. Has happened accidentally.
    Life Span
    They can live to anything from 5-8 years in perfect conditions.
