    Sooo, I have this issue. I currently have a forty gallon breeder tank and am planning on eventually building a custom aquarium at least two or three times the size and in the deminsions I want.
    The issue is my local fish store recently got in the centerpiece fish I have wanted FOREVER!
    A baby black ghost knife fish, he is only about three inches long and BEYOND ADORABLE. I know these guys get like almost two feet long but I am in love with the little guy and was wondering if he can live in the forty gallon breeder temporarily while I build his permanent home.

    It takes a black ghost many years too reach 12"', so your good.

    Do you have a picture of the little guy?

    Regretably no, I wish I did, he is your typical little black ghost knife fish.
    I plan on picking him up soon, the fish store he is at has actually had him for a couple of weeks but I just saw him earlier.
    They are closed for the weekend and I cant get him until Monday but I am so excited! Now I just need a name, any suggestions?
