Kuhli Loach

Kuhli Loach

Pangio kuhlii AKA Prickly EelFound in streams in Borneo, Java, western Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra and Thiland. A peacful, omnivorous shoaling loach. They enjoy live feeding of bloodworms and other small insects. Please exercise caution when trying to net a Kuhli. Below their eyes is a pair of sharp spines that will rise up if they feel threatened. They also have 4 pairs of barbels around their mouth. The spines and abrbels can easily get caught and potentially break off. Unlike most loaches Kuhli will not help get rid of a snail infestation. They will eat the odd snail from time to time but not enough for them to be considered effective population control. Best kept in groups of 6 or more.
