I have a 29 gallon planted tank with sand substrate and kuhli loaches. There are also some Japanese Guppies and otocinculus in with them.
The tank has CO2 and grow lighting, but there are enough plants that even mid day I usually see a loach or two out and about.
I feel like I'm battling between the plants and the loaches, because they love sifting through the sand and cover my foreground plants with sand.
My question is: is there a substrate you recommend for plants and kuhli loaches? I would like to have areas of my tank which are not sand, but won't hurt my loaches.
Pangio like to sift in the rotten leaves on the bottom of their habitat. The best way to mimic that is using peat.
Were you to add some peat to the tank, say 2 liters (half a gallon) which was boiled shortly to get it sinking, I ould assume the Pangio would leave the sand alone.
