Talking Ghost catfish?

Hello everyone!
I was doing some research online but with no luck. I saw ghost catfish at the LFS and had no idea they existed until now. I was tempted to get some but not before doing research to make sure they are compatible and how to care for them. There's nothing online that goes in depth about them as was wondering if anyone had some advice? If what I have won't be compatible are there any other suggestions? I have a 29 gallon tank with the following fish:

6 - platies
5 - zebra danios
1 - mystery snail
3 - ghost shrimp
1 - hi-fin pleco (he's 4" and will be moved to a 70 gallon when he gets a little bigger)

Aquarium parameters:
- heater
- aquaclear 50 power filter with sponge, biomax and carbon
- pH 7.5
- Nitrates 0
- Nitrites 0
- ammonia 0

I do add a little aquarium salt as well. Thanks everyone!

Google .."Glass catfish" if this is the fish you saw ,there is ton's of info on them.
Can tell you that they need to be in groups ,would likely eat the ghost shrimp,and do NOT appreciate salt.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Probably the same as the Glass Catfish, we have a profile on this fish, click on the shaded name to see it. It tells all about requirements, tank size, need to be in groups, etc.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
