By the picture, you are referring to pangio kuhli. Three Kuhli's are the absolute minimum. It also depends on the size of your tank. Hope this helps. :)

Kuhli Loaches are like Pringles... you can't have just one!

I think you are mistaking his signature which is a kuhli for what he's looking for ;)

For Striata loaches I recommend at least 3 for aquariums 30 gallons or less,
and 5 for larger aquariums.

What is the volume of the aquarium ?

Will there be any other loaches in the aquarium ?
