    So I posted a thread awhile ago about kuhli loaches. I have a 10 gallon with a dwarf gourami in it currently. I'm probably gonna get some kuhli's for it but the don't have any at the LFS and probably won't have any for awhile. So here's a poll on what you think I should put in the tank. I'm kinda hoping for fish but I'll put shrimp on the list too. They didn't have pygmy corys and they never have had them. They are supposed to get kuhli's soon. All the fish on the list are or will be available. If you choose other, please explain.

    In my opinion, both bronze corys and kuhli loaches are too big for a 10g tank, especially since they both like to be in groups. That leaves shrimp and otos, and since you said you preferred a fish, I voted for otos.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras
    75 gallon community tank: black skirt tetras, danios, bronze corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

    I heard that kuhli's have a low bioload. Are otto's quite difficult to care for?

    Not much more than shrimp are. Oto's seem to die for no reason, especially when added to new tanks.

    I keep my kuhlis in a tank with a small footprint, and wouldn't recommend keeping them in a tank that small. They can be very active.
    125 - BGK, pictus cats, silver dollars, kissing gouramis, palmas bichir, delhezi bichir
    125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis
    90 - Congo tetras, african knife, elephant nose, spotted ctenopoma, upside down cats

    I have a zebra shrimp in the 80 gallon. He's always been fine. Almost all of my water tests in all my tanks are perfect. I do weekly WC's and never miss one. So I would think ottos would be okay for me. Is 80-82 okay for temp. It gets hot in the day then drops a few degrees at night. Also, some tank details: The substate is gravel, there is 1 live plant, 1 plastic plant, 2 decorations. There is currently 1 blue powder dwarf gourami in the tank. There is a heater and AC 20 filter. The tank is cycled.
