Heya all,
I have recently aquired an adult black ghost knifefish and I was just wondering what it needs to be fed (as all fish need a varied diet) and how much it needs.

At the moment ive been feeding it bloodworms and brine shrimo and as there are a couple of bottom feeders in the tank, shrimp pellets and vege pellets.

How much of these should I be feeding him and what else can I do?

Cheers

We fed ours live ghost shrimp when it was little. As it grew past 4 inches or so she got small pieces of raw frozen shrimp, scallops,clams, squids, octopus, mussels and various raw fish. You know what she also would steal? Pleco wafers! We feed a very varied diet here but you have to start trying early.
I hope you enjoy him/her!

Thanks! He's going to be better fed than me at this rate . I'll definatly give all of those a try.
