Black ghost knife fish missing stripe?
I have two black ghost knife fish and was looking into breeding them. I found one site that said you could sex them by the way their stripe fades near the tail. Well, I just went over to my aquarium to try, and noticed they don't have a stripe! Neither one has a stripe going along their backs. They have one on their heads, and two white bands on their tails, but they don't have a stripe on their backs. Is this just because they're young or what? Come to think of it, I think some of the pics of BGKs in wholesaler tanks shows BGKs with no stripe on their back, but I don't think this is the same thing. Is this normal?
