    Question Will a black kuhli loach live in a 10 gallon tank?

    Hey my friend has a disabled 10 gallon tank. For his birthday I'm going to surprise him by setting it back up and stocking it. For the middle fish I'm thinking 5 Neons or 5 zebra Danios. I also want to get him an Otocinclus for the glass. For the bottom though I'm having a tuff time picking something out. Will the black kuhli loach be a good choice. If you have any other suggestions feel free to tell me. Thanks!

    Zebra danios are not suitable for a 10 gal. They are active fish and need a much longer tank. They will become stressed and start nipping fins.

    Ottos should really be kept in groups.

    A nice school of the neons and maybe pygmy cories for the bottom? Or check out microrasboras - a school of 10-12 would be nice.

    Hm m I've seen the microrasboras I think the neons would be better for this tank. I love cories the only problem is the gravel he has is sharp, I've only kept cories on sand. you know what though I think he would love African dwarf frogs. Maybe 3 of those will do it. So Ottos need groups? do they shoal or just enjoy company?

    BB doesn't live in the water column, using old tank water won't help anything

    I know but it should help and its already 78 degrees I'm also putting in an old filter cartridge.

    That definitely will help. Using old tank water won't do much if anything though.
