do any of you have sand as a substrate? if so how do u clean it??
I'd get 6 or more if I were you. 6 is the most recommended for minimum numbers. Less number of kuhlis make them not so bold and will hide most of the time.jsm11482 said:thanks guys. once the tank is cycled i will look into getting a couple kuhli loaches.
In my opinion, it's not too many. Neither are kuhlis big poopers compared to loricariids.jsm11482 said:6 in a 15gal? This tank is primarily just to grow plants but a few fish is ok. but is 6 too many?
You have to stir it frequently and after doing water changes.kevilknc said:I'm curious about sand as a substrate as well...I'm thinking about getting a figure 8 puffer and have read that they are brackish fish that enjoy a sand substrate. Will simple play sand suffice? I've thought that perhaps this is too bright of a substrate and will irritate the puffer. Also, how often is it necessary to stir the sand to prevent anaerobic spots?
