a fry predator, but just about any fish will eat fish eggs, larvae, or very
small fry when given the chance.
The eggs of Corydoras spp. catfish are large and very tough, but a
determined kuhli could probably make a meal of them, especially after
they hatch into soft, defenseless larvae. Free-swimming catfish fry are
probably fast and spiny enough to avoid being eaten by a kuhli loach, but
there is a good chance a loach will eat the baby catfish before they reach
The best strategy for breeding most species of fish, especially fish like
cory catfish that do not care for their eggs or fry, is to spawn them in a
breeding tank without other species.
