You could start with a 30L aquarium for a small group of loaches. This species is very active, so more space in the tank is always best. Plus, a larger tank will allow you to keep more loaches and their tank mates. Usually, the bigger, the better. That will provide ample room to swim and grow.

It is highly recommended that these fish are kept in social groups. Also, there are lots of fish that can be mixed with black kuhli loaches. Avoid keeping the loach with highly aggressive fish, goldfish, snails, shrimp. Shrimp and snails will just be a tasty snack for a clown loach.
Great tank mates for Loach include:

Pakistani Loaches will accept most foods in their diet. Any food that you give them must be easy to access at the bottom of the tank. Pellet and flake foods should be quick sinking so that your other fish will not snatch them up before they hit the bottom. Frozne or live micro bloodworms, brine shrimp, Daphnia, and tubifex are good snacks for them. They will also eat any algae that grows along the bottom of your tank. Vegetables (such as spinach and lettuce) make a healthy addition to their diet. Just make sure that they are crushed small enough to fit into their mouth.
