Kuhli Loach Questions

FishguyAU

Hi All,
I have a 23 gal community tank and I was thinking of getting 6 Kuhli loaches soon, but before I do I wanted to ask a few questions please:
(1) I have a smooth gravel substrate, will they be happy on this as I read they need sand?
(2) Currently have 1 gourami, 1 german blue ram, 2 guppies and 10 cardinal tetras, will they get along and would I be over stocked with the 6 loaches?
(3) What is the best dry food to feed them?
(4) Will I ever see them during the day or do they just come out at night?

Thanks!!

They do not need sand smooth substrate is fine. They do want to burrow and helps if you give them plenty of places to hide. If they feel safe enough you will see them. Kuhlis are not picky eaters. Sinking pellets and blood/tubifex worms are good choices. Kuhlis have a low bioload and I would feel comfortable adding 6 or more to that if it was my tank. You'll be more likely to see them in a larger group.
