Kuhli loaches and Leopard Corys

Do you think they would get along? Would they fight over same stuff since they are both bottom feeders? Or would it be ok because kuhli's are nocturnal feeders mostly?

Kuhlis are one of 2 loaches I wouldn't feel worried about mixing with cories. (The other 2 would be Botia striata & Y. sidthimunki.) Just make sure you have a sand bottom.

There is Yasuhikotakia nigrolineatus which closely resembles the Y. sidthimunki with the exception of the black line which is not in a chain appearance but a straight line.

those Yasuhikotakia nigrolineatus are cool looking. I don't have sand though, just eco-complete by itself, naked. I am guessing Kuhli's or other burrower types could get caught in the gravel and stuck?

Nope. I'd watch out for sharp edges on the gravel.

Eco-Complete might as well be sand - In fact, I have used sifted all purpose sand before with a larger average grain size than Eco-complete. I wouldn't worry about it.
