| || | Kuhli Loaches & White Cloud Minnows & Temperature
I've read in a couple places (notably Loaches: Natural History and Aquarium Care
) that white cloud minnows are good tank mates/dither fish for cobitidae loaches (like pangio kuhlii). I'd like to use them in my tank, but I'm concerned that their preferred temperature ranges don't overlap... White clouds seem to prefer 62-73 F, kuhlis 76-84 F (varies a little depending on source).
How are people combining these species? Do they just keep the temperature in the low range for kuhlis and let the white clouds adjust since they're hardier?
