I have to agree here, my black kuhli loaches are the most peaceful I have ever owned, unless of course you are a pond snail, LOL.

I started with 10 of them, and about a year later, I probably now have 20 of them, maybe more, they are hard to count.

But they have never bothered anyone non-pond snail in my tank (there are no more pond snails by the way, just MTS, which they cant eat). They are awesome to watch. When you look at their little faces, they look like little walruses.

Woah! Did they breed in your tank? They don't often spawn in captivity!

Yeah, they did. It is more common than thought these days. I know a few people who had them in their tanks, and went to clean it out and found a bunch more in their UGFs and such.

Found a site if you are trying to purposely breed your kuhlis... Are you ready for the challenge of breeding the kuhli loach?

The tank they are in is rather ideal for their breeding, down to a layer of mulm for the fry, so I just sit back and let nature take its course. Apparently it has worked, as I know I didnt add any new kuhlis and yet there are more. LOL. It's all good, I dont mind the extras. My tank is basically dedicated to the kuhlis these days. Plus, the fish I do have in the tank arent really going to bother fry, and there are no other bottom dwellers except for my kuhlis. Maybe I just got lucky. All this talk though, has me wanting to get a current count on them... maybe next weekend when my fish keeping bestie comes over I will have her help me get an accurate count. I will post back here when I have one.

I've heard of them breeding in UGF's before. I might try and see if mine spawn when I can increase the group size enough. And also make sure I have enough of the same species. I have Pangio oblonga but in my initial purchase there was another Pangio species in there that I never could ID.

That's a neat article. Loaches are some of my favorite fish and would love it if I got some to breed in my tanks.
