What color gravel!!!
 
im planning to get a blck ghost knife fish, but people are saying gravel color and change the fish's color.

i want to know waht color gravel will maintain that jet black color.

Darker colored substrates relax a fish and bring them out more. With a BGK, I would definately do black since they are sensitive to light, prefer dark places, and are nocturnal.

The whole point of a fish's color is to blend into their surroundings and not be seen. So when you put lighter colored gravel with a dark fish, they'll turn out a washed out gray, not black.
