By further research, most of the knifefish, Aba Aba knife aside, are highly compatible with one another, in fact are schooling species that do better with companions. The ossa knife and thermometer knife are perfect examples. Also, I will probably be getting one black ghost knife the thermometer knife and the group of ossa knifefish, and as I said if problems arise I will separate them. At 16 tanks, I'm not at a loss for tanks to move animals. I had 2 black ghost knives for quite a while before and had them growing extremely fast (2 inches a month!). They were together in this tank. I ended up selling them at $75 each, and each knifefish was over a foot long. They had no compatability problems as long as each had a hiding spot. Morymids are very aggressive with one another, but even they get along well as long as they are kept in a school of at least 5, and the school is in a 6 foot tank.
As for AFI, I used to like that magazine when I was younger, but as I gained experience I have found that many of the articles are written by people who have less experience than me, and I have found a lot of faults over the years with the articles in that magazine. I have found TFH to be a much better magazine, both for accuracy and for more advanced hobbyists. don't get me wrong, AFI is great for beginners, but for an advanced freshwater hobbyist, TFH is the way to go.
