    My friend has 2 bgk hes looking to rehome and asked if I wanted them. I just want to make sure they'll fit in. Tank is 125gal 72Lx18Wx22H.
    Here's what I have so far:

    4 Angels (2 are pretty aggressive, maybe due to smaller tank size)
    1 bristlenose pleco
    1 redtail shark
    1 albino rainbow shark
    3 glass catfish
    6 or 7 kuhli loaches (plan on getting 10 or so more)

    I just want to make sure everyone is going to live peacefully.

    PS I know what people will say about the sharks, they already live in the same tank and dont have issues so I'm not worried about them.

    The BGK is highly predatory. I do not think the glass cats and kuhili will survive long

    2 ghost knife, each capable of reaching around 20in. A 125 won’t be big enough IMO. I’d worry about the glass cats and loaches getting eaten too, smaller fish are generally a no go with knife fish.
