  • Anyone bred Kuhli Loaches before?

    Has anyone here ever bred Kuhli Loaches before? I know they don't start breeding until they are sexually mature at 2 years old and my cluster of Kuhlis (12-15) are 3+ year olds. I'm hoping they would breed in a heavily planted community tank.

    I also know it is rare for them to breed in captivity, but wishful thinking here.

    give them plenty of hiding and it will happen eventually. Unless theres stuff eating the babies

            I tried a couple different barrels with them. One was at pH of 8. Another was at 7.5. And the third was at 6.4. The best breeding was in the later two barrels. All the barrels were species only. Each was 60g rain barrel that was filled to the brim with Java Moss and was left outside.

              I have heard of them breeding under UGF's for people as well.

                          I know where to get those. I was contemplating on breeding them last week. I had to google what Daisy Ricefish because I've always seen them labeled as Oryzias woworae.

                          Currently they are being sold as $7 per fish unless you get a group of 6 for $36.

                            I get the fish for free lol. I just pay shipping. At my old house in India I threw some in a pond and now it is infested with them. Right pests if you ask me.
