  1. Awesome shot! 🙂
    I haven’t had these for a long time. I’ve got too many plants and rocks in my tanks and I’d never see these. I only occasionally see my Clown Plecos… and that is bad enough!

      It’s funny, a lot of people say that. I have a group of 5 currently, and I can see 2 or 3of them all the time. After a big water change all 5 are out swimming madly up and down like Corydoras do after a water change.

  2. I love Khuli loaches! What an excellent photo. I’ve also heard people saying that they’re shy, but I’m with you AJ Cann – I can always see more than a few of mine! (I have 6 standard and 6 black) I’ve had people argue that that means they feel ‘unsettled’ as there’s not enough places to hide, however knowing my own tank I disagree. I have fingerwood, plenty of anubias and other plants, as well as clay tunnels. I think that they’re actually quite relaxed and feel safe and that’s why they hang about in the open.
