    Will kuhlis and cory catfish get along or should I just stick with one or the other? This is for a 55 gallon and I was thinking 10 kuhlis and 6 cory.

    yes they will work just wonderfully together. You can increase the schools of both without any trouble in a 55. Unless you have plans for other bottom dwellers.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Kuhli are shy, having a second bottom dweller may well cause they to go entirely nocturnal.
    These species can coexist without issues but personally I'd go for an all cory setup.

    If you don't have sand but gravel then neither is a really good choice

    Ive had kuhlis and cories together with no issues. They both were happy and very active. If you provide enough plants, rocks etc so there is plenty of cover for them to hide and play they should be fine.

    Thanks, I think I'll do both. I have sand and plenty of hiding spots. I do have a dwarf BN pleco but he won't bother anyone.

    I have a 75 gallon with 11 corys, 7 Kuhlis and 5 Dojo loaches. I also have 1 albino BN, and 2 clown plecos. they all get along well and I don't have any issues with the Kuhlis hiding or fighting with the corys, or vice versa. I do have lots of plants and my background has a ledge that serves as a "cave" that my corys take full advantage of.

    I would see no problem keeping both in a tank that big, and I would get 10 Cory's also ;-)
