Other tank inhabitants?

Kuhlis are a little more nocturnal, and its common not to see them out and about during the day, so if you don't have any other bottom dwellers or you're keeping fish that's slightly more crepuscular and nocturnal in nature, I would suggest the cories. However, if your keeping placid/peaceful fish that don't appreciate rowdy tank mates or you're looking for something a little different, get the kuhlies.

As long as they're Corys you're going the right way.

Maybe in the future, but for now, I have already spent too much money on my tanks, including fish

You do know you’ll never be done spending money on them right? I’m saying corys. Loaches in six months.

Albinos are my faves. Probably because I’ve got three.

Noooo but the bigger the school the morr you'll appreciate the behaviour shown.
Think about combining bronze and albinos.
There seem.to be two Kuhlis in my 40G.
I hardly ever see them.

I have albino cory and black kuhlI loaches in my 55 and the albinos are a lot more active but I find the loaches more interesting to watch. depends what you’re going for, id do the loaches.

To be honest I like the Peppered albinos even more hahaha.

First is an aeneus, second a paleatus

Do you have any pictures of your loaches? I kinda just want something that is fun to look at, lol. I also don’t want too much different colors since the cherry barbs have that covered.
