    Default Kuhli loaches with CA cichlids??

    0 Not allowed!
    So I am seriously considering tearing down my goldfish tank and re-purposing it as an Mbuna tank. I will try to find a pond for my comet and the fancy, but then I still have about 9 kuhli loaches to try to figure something out for. I'd love to keep the kuhli's if at all possible, but I don't think they are going to survive with Mbunas. Would they do better with a FM, HRP and Blue Acara in my 75 gallon tank? They, of course, look nothing like any of those cichlids so I don't imagine that they'd be a territorial threat (even though they inhabit the same regions of the tank) and I don't think that the cichlids will get big enough to consider a 4" loach a potential snack, but I really have no idea and couldn't find much on the subject. Thoughts?

    I wouldnt put them in a tank outside of a community setting. They look to much like worms and are to small and most likely would be eaten.

    I agree with Sandz. Their appearance would be too likely to trigger a feeding response with anything larger than dwarf cichlids

    Ok, thanks! I'm not positive it's going to happen, but it's good to know that if it does I'll just need to re-home to kuhlis as well.
