Acanthophthalmus is a genus name of some species of freshwater fish belonging to the loach family (Cobitidae).

Acanthophthalmus fish are native to Southeast Asia, where they inhabit sandy or muddy bottoms of slow-moving rivers and streams.

However, they require clean water, soft substrate, and plenty of hiding places to thrive in captivity.

One of the most common species of Acanthophthalmus is Pangio kuhlii, also known as kuhli loach.

Acanthophthalmus was named after Heinrich Kuhl, a German naturalist and zoologist.

This fish is endemic to the island of Java in Indonesia, where it is rarely collected for the aquarium trade.

It has 10 to 15 dark bars on its body and a light underside.

It is a bottom dweller that burrows into soft places.

Acanthophthalmus can spawn in very shallow water, laying a few hundred greenish eggs among the roots of floating plants.
