    I went to my petsmart about 2 or 3 weeks ago and picked up 10 Kuhli loaches . Sence then they have been mostly hiding or swimming around rocks and the fake silk plants I have. About 2 days ago I'm seeing some of them swimming in the back top/middle part of my 55g tank. I don't no if they are just playing swimming back and forth though the wall of bubble or if there is something wrong

    Thank you for any advice

    If they are swimming, they're fine. They have some really interesting antics. I wouldn't worry about it :)

    I agree, mine use to swim in a huge circle non-stop from the bottom of the tank, to the top and back. Was hilarious to watch! They'd go for maybe 5 minutes at least.

    They can also go through periods of inactivity, so don't be surprised if you don't see any all of a sudden. Really interesting fish to keep.

    Yea they would all be under rocks plants and at feeding time I would see them all dart out from different areas of the tank
