I just got 2 of what i belive to be redspot loaches. the guy at the LFs Had no idea what they were. they were in the plant tank. but looking at pic's on line this is what i belive they are.

now the tank id like to put them in has 4 little (about 2") striped kuhlies. will they bother my kuhlies?

from what ive read they can be a bit territorial.

this says that they Usually peaceful towards non-Schistura species of fish
but i have no idea what Schistura species of fish is lol

I'm not sure what red spotted loaches might be. Common names are hard to identify as a species.

Can you post a pic? You'll likely have to upload it to a hosting site, this site has an older format.

I guess Erromyzon sinensis means ER02 on Nancy.
Not the best joice for Pangios regarding the oxygen need of Erromyzon means water mooving fast. They re abssolutely harmless and the ritualistic behaviour makes part of their social comportment. I have now F3 at work, more than 100 bred and never a damage however.

you can also compare your loach with Schistura notostigma. A common name for it in german is "orange spot loach / Orangefleck Bachschmerle" But this loach didn't has a real orange spot, sometimes you can see a bit like that in the dorsal fin... Or the "crimson loach" (also a schistura species) or charles Erromyzon...

Btw: Nice to read you you Charles, hope you are doing well!

Or so. Doesn't seem to matter anymore as we don't get answers or pics
Yes Thomas, I'm back and recovered. Or still there?
