What should I feed my kuhli loach?

You should feed your kuhli loach a healthy and varied diet, which includes:

  • Sinking pellets
  • Sinking wafers
  • Algae tablets and wafers
  • Frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms
  • Brine shrimp
  • Live daphnia
  • Live blackworms
  • Finely chopped meat and vegetables

Make sure all the food you choose can sink to the bottom. Kuhli loaches are bottom-dwellers, so they won’t swim up to the surface to grab some food. They might starve and become malnourished if you only provide floating foods.

Also, feed your kuhli loaches two to three times a day. Only feed what they can consume within two or three minutes.
