Hi Kate,

They will eat bloodworms. Mine chomp them in a slow manner because their mouths can't stuff too much BWs but they will manage. :)
Other than that, they will eat small bits of sinking food.:)

What do they look like as juveniles? My lfs has what they're calling kuhlis, but they are solid brownish, without yellow stripes. Is what they have a different species, or do the yellow stripes show up later?

Jasyn, what you probably have is a black or chocolate kuhli. There are 15 species of genus Pangio listed in the Loaches.com species index. They're all recognizably kuhli loaches, and there are three that are only commonly known as kuhli loaches, Pangio kuhli, P. cuneovirgata, and P. malayana. My kuhlis are, in fact, P. myersi, Giant kuhlis. Yours is probably P. oblongata, though if it's a textured rather than solid brown it may be P. piperata. They all have pretty much the same requirements, though.

Lot's of kuhlis do change patterns as they get older, but this isn't one of them. They stay brown.

So I've lost two to ich and mishap. Drat, nuts, and fiddlesticks to that. I've noticed that mine are bigger than I expected them to get, and their dark bars are much thicker than I recall from my youthful kuhli keeping. I think I may actually have gotten Pangio myersi - Giant Kuhlis - which grow to an astoundingly colossal...



... Four inches.

I'd like to get them some more company, but I have no idea when I'll be able to find this species again. :(

They certainly have very striking markings on them. Good luck with finding them, I've never seen them for sale before - but if I did I would definitely get some.

Four inches!
