During my tank tear down last night, I found a young kuhlii loach. Prior to the tear down, I had a small field of Blyxa japonica with a couple small clay pots hidden in the Blyxa. The kuhliis primarily stayed in the Blyxa corner and would come out in the early morning looking for food. Here's some pics.

It's a little blurry, but you can see the size comparison with an adult.

Thanks. From what I have been reading, the parents usually eat the eggs after they are laid. I guess one egg managed to stay hidden. It's always surprising to find babies doing well when you didn't even know you had them.

Its extremely rare for kuhlis to breed in a home aquarium! Congrats! You must be doing something right. People can try for years to breed kuhlis and never have any success

This is the (now torn down) field of Blyxa the loaches called home.


I rescaped the tank using Blyxa as my main foreground. You can see updated pics in my 125 gal journal.
