So, I've read that kuhli loach are nocturnal. But, at night, im observing them if they will come out. But, they didnt. And do all kuhli loaches has some redish color in their gills. My LFS said that its just normal.
I'm not sure about the reddish color. Mine don't have that, but they are the "brown" version, and don't have the stripes. Red gills usually means ammonia poisoning. They are really hearty fish but do better in groups. Get a few more when you can. Mine are out all the time during the day, and especially at feeding time. Cute, active little guys.
