Kuhli Loaches are from Indonesia, Java and Borneo specifically, like a great number of Cryptocoryne plants are. Many, many barbs and rasboras are from there as well. A biotope tank would duplicate a small, forest stream, with mud and/or gravel bottoms, a carpet of Crypts on the bottom, and bogwood and rounded stones. A gentle linear flow via power heads would duplicate the stream.
I've got a picture of the kinds of creeks, ditches and streams those fish come from floating around on one of my external drives. I'll post it if I can find it.

Thanks, I think it would be best if I went with the biotope idea.
Fish would be happiest, and gives me some guidelines on what to put in there.
I found these sites to have some interesting information for anyone else interested in setting something like this up.
Mind you, I don't know if it's accurate or not."If you aren't part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate"
