Largely nocturnal, loaches are shy fish that like to hide among driftwood, plant roots, rocks, and caves. Loaches are peaceful fish that get along well with other peaceful community tank mates.
Unfortunately, the breeding habits of the Black Kuhlii Loach have not been documented.
Although it is a scavenger, Pangio semicinctus is largely carnivorous, preferring freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, as well as frozen and live foods of all types. With time and training, the Black Kuhlii Loach may accept flake foods.
