Kuhli loach attitude
« on: February 19, 2017, 06:47:51 pm »
Hiya TFF
I have 3 regular looking kuhlis and 3 'black' kuhlis. But one of the black ones keeps doing some weird thing around my tank and have no clue why just one of them are doing it. https://youtu.be/Ary6o0ys-CE
Sometimes another black kuhli might join in but it's been persistently do this for a month now. Any info would be great.

    Have they just been fed, or is it near feeding time?
    Have you check for any signs of whitespot or similar?
    Have you done a water change recently?
    Has the air pressure changed (raining/sunshine/etc.)?
    Observation.....those pieces of slate look sharp - are they? If so, file them down as the loaches could hurt themselves.......

    Hiya. Thanks for the reply.

    I fed them some bloodworm approx an hour before it started this. The slate is not filed but has large gaps between slate and glass to avoid them getting caught. The slate in my tank practicaly falls apart if you pinch it in the corner. Filing would destroy it  :'(  :'(  :'(

    My tank is parasite free and no water changes as of recent. Weather has been cloudy for last few days nout much.

    64L, my pair of EBRs, 3 baby albino bristlenoses, the 6 kuhlis, and my emerald green endler offspring (all males). 25-26'c. Medium-hard water. (should be soft for EBRs no hate please)

    With 6 khulis they should be pretty laid-back. Yes they do "dance" but not usually for a whole month. Maybe he' some some house or garage music in his head that he can't shake.......raaaaaaaave!? ;) *grin*

    Next time they dance I'll be recording it to background music just for the giggles  :)

    Would a trio of corydoras impact my kuhlis much, just out of curiosity?

    I won't keep loaches and corys together, simply because the loaches are to exuberant for the corys, and may hurt them during the feeding frenzy.
    Anyway, you need at least 5 corys. ;) :)
