Oh I am so excited about it I decided to make a post!
I got some Black Kuhli loaches about two months or so ago, hoping but not expecting them to breed. Well they did. I hear it's nearly impossible to get them to breed in aquariums without adding in hormones and things like that, but I said if they don't want to breed, I'm not going to make them do it by adding things.
Well a few minutes ago I looked over there and saw two Kuhli's way smaller than the ones I have, which are about three to four inches long. The little ones are only about an inch or so, I have no idea how long they were there. I had two or three males and five or six females in there(I have eight, two males for sure, one I am not sure about). You'd think it'd be hard to miss bright green eggs, not to mention the parents will sometimes eat both the eggs and the babies, so I have no idea how many there were originally. But I moved the rock cave and there's ten or fifteen babies in there! I am so excited about it!
Any tips on what to feed them? They're doing well as is. I put pieces of algae wafers in there, brine shimp, blood worms, tube worms and some plant matter. I also have molly and platy fry in there, and the kuhli's will eat a lot of the same stuff they do too. But do I need smaller stuff, like baby brine shrimp for them to be absolutely sure they get enough to eat?
