:confused:
i'm starting a tropical fish tank and i am thinking about getting kulii loaches but i also want some inverts (red cherry shrimps).
but ive heard that loaches and inverts don't get along.
do you think it would be ok

Kuhli loaches are usually safe with shrimp. It's possible that they'll snack on babies but I doubt it'd be a problem if they're well-fed and the tank is heavily planted :). I would add the cherry shrimp first to give them a chance to get established and begin breeding.

My kuhli loaches have never bothered my shrimp, or my snails. I don't keep varieties that can breed in tank conditions however, so I have no idea if they'd snack on the babies.
