Diet: Kuhli loaches are scavengers in the wild, and because of this, they will eat nearly anything that is offered to them in the home aquarium. Will take all types of life & frozen food, good quality pellet and flake food (such as New Life Spectrum pellets).
In the wild, Kuhli loaches tend to inhabit slow flowing streams and rivers with soft, muddy bottoms. While they are not a traditional schooling fish, they naturally form into large groups with regular and playful interactions.
