Well, Bumble Bee Gobies should be in Brackish water. They get 1.3/4 inches, or in centemeter terms - 4.5cm. They thrive on 'meat' or 'live' foods, such as: Mosquito larvae and Baby Brine Shrimp. Hope I've helped!

I think knight gobies live in fresh and they don't get big. Congrats on the khulis!! Great little fish eh?

I pay around 3$ for khulis no matter if they are common or black. They will get roughly 3" and half the diameter of a pencil. No problem, thats what I come here to do, to help and learn.

i was just wondering if i am at risk of breeding kuhlis?
and how hard is it to breed them. u seem to no lots and have u bred them

There not known to breed in captivity as are most loaches. I would think the only way to breed them is massive water changes to make the water a tad colder and lower lighting schedule and increase feeding. That is what I would try but I figure you will never know if/when they spawn because they hide and there eggs will probably be in there little cove they make. By the way, what type of substrate are you using? They prefer sand.

i have small gravel about 1/2 a centimetre if not smaller thick/round they seem to like the driftwood but i am going to make a dark cave for them soon (no idea how but....) hows that

01-24-2008, 01:11 PM
What I was meaning by sand was they like to burrow under stuff and make like a cave under decor and such. You might take a larger flat rock such as slate and one both sides but a small stone so that it's not to awful high up in the air but just high enough for the khulis to get under, they will dish it out under there and that is where they will stay a majority of the time and at feeding time they will only stick out their heads in hopes of catching some food that makes it to the bottom.

the larger kuhli would push around Big rocks in his old tank and they have made a burrow like thing under the driftwood and i think iit is slate but its a flat rock and theres1 or 2 under there

As long as they can make a burrow then your fine.

Did you make sure to laugh while the pet store guy struggled to catch a kuhli? and did you tell him "I don't like that one, get me another one" 10 times in a row until he gives up? And, finally, did you end up saying "I don't want one anymore. I changed my mind"?

I had to wait 15 mins for the 3 kuhlis!!!

01-26-2008, 12:47 AM
LOL!!!! I think I might get a kuhli only to watch the pet store guy try and catch one!

01-26-2008, 01:06 AM
My LFS and myself have never had trouble catching them.
