Talking Anyone keep Kuhli?

I have a handful in a 29 gallon though I was wondering if anyone kept them in 10 gallon tanks? I have so much conflicting information on if they would be okay in a tank that size :/

The 10 gallon in question would have a female betta and them in it and I haven't fully set up the tank yet because I was going to lean the substrate type, plants, deco, and ect towards whatever tank mate I get for her if any at all.

I might just get shrimp though. *shrug*

I think you could keep a couple of Kuhlis in a 10 gallon.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

I just want to make sure. I quite like them and wouldn't want to hurt them any.

As long as they have a hiding place and decorations to play on, they should be fine. Also, leave some empty space for swimming. Good luck!

If you get kuhlis, you need a minimum of 4. They're extremely social creatures and need to be in groups of their own kind.

I adore my kuhlis. Nothing but cuddles and play time between them all. It's super cute.

I wouldn't recommend them unless you have sand substrate though. They very much prefer it for feeding, sleeping, and burrowing into.

6.6g planted bookshelf tank -
6 black kuhli loaches, 1 mystery snail
Anubias nana, Java moss

2.5g planted -
2 horned nerite snails
Anubias barteri var. nana 'petite', marimo ball

And a few tropical community and cool water tanks.

Yeah I know they like to be in groups. Supposedly I can stock 5 + one female betta in a 10 gallon [according to aqadvisor.com] though I think 4 might be safer. I'd need to watch the water levels to make sure they stayed good.

I haven't bought substrate for the 10 gallon yet actually. I was going to see if I could keep them in a tank that size and then get decorations and sand based around them. And plants :D So many plants.

I recently adopted two from a person who couldn't keep them anymore [at all it was that or they would have just ditched them D:] so they are currently in my 29 which has pretty round/small gravel but I'd rather move them to a tank with sand and get them playmates. That or it was some serious redecorating in the 29 ha ha.

Yes, most likely. I don't think kuhlis like eating shrimp.

I saw these at my store yesterday and considered a few, today they were all dead when I went in. Such neat fish.
