How about an African Blockhead (Steatocranus Casuarius) or a Teleogramma Brichardi for the bottom & maybe a few Butterflyfish (Pantodon Buchholzi) for the surface?

I like the Haplochromis Burtoni. They are a nice fish.

Jewels are pretty aggressive. I don't think it would play nice with the Knife.

The Jewel is ok but I would put at least 2. Mkae sure they are Females so you don't have a fight with the rest of the fish if they spawn.

I thought kribs were South American?

I'd say move the kribs to their own 15 gallon tank. Having that whole bunch of aggressive fish around while spawning might just do them too much stress.

there's only two other not-so-aggressive fish with them now. The knifefish leaves everything alone, and the ctenopoma rarely ventures far from its territory
