Tank Mates

They do best with smaller fish and are social with their own.  Peaceful mid-dwellers like Neon Tetras, Rasboras, Danios, Molliles and Guppies.  Bottom dwellers like Otocinclus, other Corydoras and other calm species.  Dwarf shrimps are generally safe.

Notes

Kuhli Loaches look like freshwater eels and are nocturnal.  They’re generally easy to keep but can be sensitive to water changes.  When keeping in groups, add 3 – 5 gallons for each additional Kuhli loach.  Provide smooth substrates like sand for them to dig into feed at night when lights are out

Note: Kuhli Loaches are not algae eaters and they love to snack on little snails

Tank Mates

Cardina and Neocardina Shrimp, Cardinal and Neon Tetras, Zebra Danios, Hatchetfish, Mollies, Dwarf Gourami, Angelfish and Guppies, Zebra Loaches, Yoyo Loaches

Notes

Otocinclus are very hardy and one of the most peaceful nano catfish you'll ever find.  They're true herbivores and wont eat baby shrimp fry.  They're also a shoaling fish, so when kept in larger groups they'll swim around together from one feeding point to another.

Tank Mates

Dwarf Corydoras are great tank mates with most shrimp species!

They're also great with Tetras, Rasboras, Danios, Hatchetfish, Mollies, Dwarf Gourami, Angelfish, Guppies, Loaches and Otocinclus

Notes

Smooth sand or gravel substrate preferred.  They're not solely algae eaters, so provide wafers and other foods as well.  Careful with aggressive fish eaters as they may not get enough nutrition at the bottom of tank.
