I have heard that they do thrive in a large tank with lots of hiding places. In the wild they live in root systems and under rock piles. I am sure that they would love some driftwood.

What Black Ghost Knife's need is more cover than roughage. Driftwood will provide cover and look good. They are sensitive to light and skittish.

Be aware, a BGK can reach two feet in length so if you're planning on keeping these fish you're going to need a bigger tank.
