    I've decided that kuhli loaches are amazing and I need more.

    Does anyone on this forum breed loaches?

    Eel loaches or kuhlis, I have one eel loach but it hides a lot so might need some friends.

    EDIT: The eel loach is a Pangio anguillaris.

    Seen Eel Loaches only very rarely

    Kuhli's quite common. Most fish shops stock them.
    Have you tried various shops in Cape Town??

    I was hoping to find some that were tank bred, but will look at fish stores.

    Yep, eel loaches are difficult to find. Also, the eel loach doesn't seem to like socializing with the kuhlis.

    Not sure if Kuhlis breed in tanks.
    And certainly not on a regular basis ?

    Apparently there has been some success in recent years but if I remember correctly only when kept in a biotope aquarium.

    One member here bred them apparently. I have his old fish and their babies

    They are serious lovers of Cucumber. You must phone around and see who may have them

    Thing is were they intentionally bred or did it just happen? I have read it happens sometimes but very seldom is the aquariast intentionally trying to breed them.

    Why are you trying to jab it with a fork?:p
