The Black Ghost Knifefish is a very loved fish among hobbyists. It can be a very timid fish while acclimating, but will eventually be very friendly. It will even be hand fed. It is a beautiful oddball fish, with jet black all over its body, and a white band on its tail, and nose. This fish should be kept in a large aquarium, as they do reach a very large size. They will generally not bother their mates, and do well with other large fish. It will eat anything small enough to fit in it’s mouth.
