    I recently bought a 10 gal tank and I was wondering how many Kuhli Loaches I can add and what kind of fish are compatible with them

    Since you need a group of 6 kuhli loaches, they are schooling fish, a 10 gallon wouldn't work at all.

    Kuhli loaches need at least a 20 gallon since they are a schooling fish that needs 6 or more of their own kind and still be able to swim around.

    Welome to Fishlore.

    We really need a "sticky" that says 10 gal tanks are only suitable for a single betta, 4 male guppys, RCS, etc....

    Good luck with your selections!

    Yeah, unfortunately, your options are extremely limited with a 10G. Definitely not kuhli loaches. Maybe shrimp and snails?

    Welcome to fishlore! Yeah, kuhli loaches are too big for a 10g.
    Here ya go: https://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/...tions/200264-stocking-options-10-gallons.html
    That's the list of fish that will work in a 10g. There are a ton, but most aren't common.
