BGK do eat small fish so your tetras would probally be food. Also most knifes hide all day and if you dont think its getting enough food you can always use a feed stick or straw to get the food to the bgk hiding spot. I personally wouldn't add one to a tank that size with those fish.

55 is probably too small for a BKG.

really... thats why i love this forum because the fish store says they need a 30 gal. max. ok then ive decided that im better off not getting one, also becuase i think im going to have some angel eggs soon.
