I got myself an aquarium (68 litres) in November 1996, and some of the first inhabitants moving in were 3 kuhli loaches. One of them is still alive and doing well, almost 18 years later! Since 10 years back he/she is living in an aqua terrarium that he/she shares with two Japanese fire bellied salamanders. My question is now if anyone has an idea about how old can a kuhli loach really get?!?! Searched the web in Swedish and English but only found info that they can live up to 10 years, in some cases up to 15 years.
