I am thinking of adding three-five Kuhli loaches in my 29 g tank. I keep a dozen of Tiger Barbs in it. How big tank would be OK for Kuhlies?

I've never seen a big one so my guess would be almost any tank size. I find they like ot have wood or rock to hide under. I moved a couple this last week when I didn't mean to do it. They were somewhere in a piece of wood that I moved and they suddenly showed up in the new tank! Good thing there were no big fish in that tank as they look a lot like fish worms.

A 29 gallon would work well with peaceful tank-mates. The minimum I would keep them in is a 20 gallon since they like to swim a lot. The bigger the group and the more cover they have, the more likely you are to see them out foraging during the day. In my 20 gallon I have 6 of them (3 black and 3 striped), and the black kuhlis (pangio oblonga) are much more active.
