Question: Can kuhli loaches be kept with a spiny eel?

Posted By: CF

In a 45 gallon tank (it's high rather than long) I have a 6 inch spiny eel (tire track) as well as a very large pleco. The eel hangs out in the rocks, where I assume kuhli loaches would want to stay, and I have read that spiny eels are considered agressive (to date I have had no such problems). The pleco became so agressive towards a corydoras catfish that I had to move it to another tank. My question is this: If I got kuli loaches would they be attacked by the pleco and/or the eel?-would appreciate any comments-thanks-CF
