The Kuhli loach, also commonly known as Coolie loach, comes from the Tropical waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, Java and surrounding areas The Kuhli Loach is eel shaped Its body colorings are a kind of salmon-pink/yellow with dark brown to black stripes that half circles the body The stomach is a sort of a whitish colour

The eyes on the Kuhli Loach are set in one of the stripes and therefore not easily seen The mouth is set at a downward angle and with 3 pairs of bushy barbels adorning it; it looks like it has an obstinate little moustache Its fins are translucent

This rather pretty little loach is fairly easy to care for in the home aquarium, needing water that is medium-soft to medium and pH around 6.0 to 7.0 It has been known, however, for them to adapt to most water conditions Its region in the tank is the bottom where it browses for food

The temperature should be 75 - 85 F (24 - 29 C) The kuhli loach has an advantage over most of the other loaches kept in aquariums, inasmuch as it never grows too large, growing around 8-11 cm (3-5 in) in length Also their bioload is very small for a loach

Be sure to keep the tank covered properly at all times as it can squeeze out of quite small places The minimum tank size required for the kuhli is 20 gallons (37 liters)
