Knifefish Facts

A few threads about knifefish recently indicate that many consider these fish without realizing the requirements. This article explains these. This is not a fish for the inexperienced aquarist, nor will it be healthy in too small (under 10 feet--yes, he says 10 feet) tanks.

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]

Wow, I'd love a tank that big, but I wouldn't even begin to know where I would find someone to custom build that thing.
