How long do Kuhli Loaches live?  I believe ours are at least 5 years old.  I've attached a pic of a very fat one of ours -

Loaches are pretty long lived. I cannot be sure for Kuhlis, but I have seen 8-15 years mentioned. I have had some of my Y. sidthimunki for almost 15 years. My biggest clown is at least 18 years old. I got it in 2002 and it was several years old at the time.
