This Brown Ghost Knife fish is a real one-of-a-kind and will add instant appeal to your fishtank Ghost knifes (or knives maybe?) can swim forwards, backwards, sideways, upside-down and pretty much any other angle - fascinating to watch. They can grow quite large, up to 30cm if kept in a large tank and are well looked after on average, but known to grow up to 60cm and live over 7 years given the right conditions.

They prefer live foods like bloodworm, Brine Shrimp, meaty frozen foods, worms and small feeder fish but can be trained to eat regular flakes or pellets, peas, earthworms and frozen community fish foods. Ghost knifes like to have a place to hide, but are very active and can be spotted at almost any time of the day, they do like a planted Aquarium as this gives options for hiding.

It is best not to keep too many ghost knifes together, as they will argue if they don't have their own space. However, they will cohabit happily with a wide variety of other peaceful aquarium fish.
