Spaghetti Kuhli

Posted By: Rick

I bought another Black Kuhli yesterday, this little guy was so unusual looking I just had to buy him. He's about as skinny as a piece of spaghetti and approx. 3.5" long. He has the highest dorsal fin (in proportion to body diameter) I've ever seen on any Kuhli and it's only about 1/2" from his tail. He's also darker than any Black Kuhli I've ever seen and he doesn't have the lighter colored underside.

Are there different species of Black Kuhlis or is this guy just diameter challenged? Perhaps he'll put some girth on with age?

Any info would be appreciated!

Rick
