What fish do I want?
Ive been looking at heaps of tropical fish on the Internet and think some look really awesome and would be nice to have but might not work in my current tank.
My tank is a 65L community tank with 3 Platys (2 female 1 male) 3 Mollys (2 female 1 male) 4 male Guppies and 2 small Angelfish.
I saw some Black Ghost Knife Fish at my LPS the other day and they look so cool.But would it go in my fish tank or is it too small?
If it cant is there any other fish that look as cool as the black ghost knife fish that are small and friendly?:-)
BGK get to be 18" and require a large tank (125gal+) with plenty of room and places to hide in. They will also hunt and eat any fish they can fit their mouth around.
I agree with about the BGK, much too large for your tank. Your Angelfish are going to be too large for your tank also. I would swap out the 2 Angels for 1 dwarf gourami.
The two Angelfish i have are really small only about 5cm and 7cm. But if they get too big then i would probably have to change them.
Is there any fish that is like a Black ghost knife fish?
Im also looking at getting some little halfbeaks.
I would swap the angels now. Don't want to get attached to them if you need to move them from the tank (which you eventually will). Gouramis are excellent fish. Sometimes a little bit aggressive, but with hiding places for them, they can make great pets.
(edit: you don't want a BGK as we have already discussed. BGK are very unique, I don't know of any fish that shows any knid of resemblence to a BGK. What is a half-beak?)
The guy said they only grow about 10cm max for females and males are about 6cm. Mostly stay at the top of the water and are apparently friendly but may be aggressive to their own kind if male to female ratio is low.
