    um Dazz i dont think it would work very well.  Because the both send off very small electrical currents.  and its not good to have two electric sending fish in one tank, at least thats what i found on the internet. :-\ hope that helps. :)

    Yep it be bad idea. Joe is exactly right and they may even fight or the bigger will chase off the other

    Actually, they do get along well with each other... i have one elephant nose with 4 ghost knife fish and a couple of discus... they get along just fine...

    I do not have an elephant nose but I do have a BGK. If you do that setup, add lots of rock/hiding holes and plants for them to hide in and you would need a massive tank to keep them all as adults.
