Mine are most busy at dawn and dusk, and are hidden during the day.
Kuhlies are more visible when you have a good sized school (at least 6). If you just have a few, they do tend to hide more.
Happy fish keeping!
As stated above, a huge key is to have a nice group. I have 7. I'd love to get even more!
Also, I can't say for sure, but I believe that they are a lot happier in a heavily planted tank. I also have a rock cave for them and a few pots on their sides, though they really don't hide very often. They feel more secure knowing that they have a place to hide if they need it.

A passerby noticed my largest aquarium through my living room window as it was lit up on dark nights.
As an unsucessful fishkeeper he wanted to give me his two remaining fish, a mature female Krib and a large single Kuhli Loach, so he knocked on my door.
To save these two healthy fish, I took them off his hands and added them to my Clown Loach aquarium.
The Krib proved to be a lovely addition to my aquarium and later bred when I purchased a male. However, I never saw the Kuhli Loach again!
My brother has since kept Kuhli Loaches in a group. They could be seen at any time foraging on the substrate among the dense plants.
I hope I get the photo link right because it is my first!
What an adorable loach!Loach777 wrote:The Kuhli Loaches have decided to hide behind a piece of drift wood. One came up to the glass and I managed to photograph it. http://s1146.photobucket.com/albums/o53 ... G_2913.jpg

I am always taking pictures and video of my kuhlis. They are just so fun!
You'll find that they love to drape themselves in the plants.
Also, be ready with the camera and some popcorn when you do your first water change with them, if you haven't already! Mine LOVE water changes!
