Hi fish peeps,

Thank you for reading our post, and we'd LOVE any suggestions you may have!

We have a 29 gallon tank with 7 RET's, a pleco, and a kuhli loach. What would be appropriate tank mates considering the size of the tank and the current community?

Rocky and Jason

Welcome to fishlore!


What type of pleco?

Kuhli loaches are schooling fish and should be kept in groups of 6+ so I would start by adding 7-9 more of them.

You could add some honey gouramis.

First I'd get about six more Kuhli Loaches they don't like to be alone.
What Kind of Pleco do you have in there?

The pleco is a hypo...I'm pretty sure. So it sounds like we need more kuhli loaches right away.

How many honey gouramis? Thx everyone, really appreciate it.

Hypostomus plecos can easily reach 1 foot long and need 180 gallons minimum

2 or 3 honeys should be fine or one dwarf gourami

Wow, that's huge! I'll have to do some research to make sure that's the pleco we have.

Gonna look into the gouramis, but first we have to go get some more kuhli 's asap. I feel bad for the little guy.

Now, do they all need to be kuhli loaches or can there be another type of loach mixed with the kuhli?

Great, thanks!

I like the dwarf gourami. So only one though?

Here's a pic of the pleco, can anyone identify what kind it is?
