CLOWN KNIFE FISH

Original price was: $136.00.Current price is: $32.99.

Knifefish are a member of the Apteronotidae family and the speckled knifefish group. They are considered a true bony fish. They possess a weak electrical organ at the caudal peduncles which are used to locate food. They require excellent filtration for best results! This is a generally timid and reclusive fish, preferring a fine-gravel-bottom aquarium with plenty of roots and rocks for hiding places & subdued to dark lighting or tanks with many floating plants. Many hobbyists will purchase a “ghost tube,” which is merely a clear plastic tube that facilitates viewing during the day. Once accustomed to its surroundings, the Black Ghost Knifefish can become incredibly tame and trusting to the point of being hand-held! It does very well with other, larger species of a peaceful nature, but maybe aggressive towards those of similar or smaller size.
