    Nice fish-so these are related to the Black-ghost Knife fish are they?

    I believe they come from the same family...I don't know much about the ghost knife fish though.

    Thanks!!  :)  He IS cool, weird and very awesome.  Waiting for my tank to cycle so I could get him was the longest few weeks of my life!  I was positive that when I went back to the pet store to finally get him, they would be sold out!!!  Luckily, they weren't.  :)

    My pet store had one tank of them for a few months but now they are gone. I think they may have just ordered them for something different. I had never seen them before that, either, and I go there way too frequently!

    Your elephant nose fish is awesome :) how big will he get?

    also, i wanted to ask you another question a little off topic -- do your danios (im assuming you have zebras) and your neons get along well?

    These wish are ok to be put in the same tank, a friend of mine has them both in one tank and they get along fine the neons keep themselves to themselves, I would reccomend getting more than 3 zebras as they will chse other fish smaller than themselves if they do not have as many of themselves to play with ;)
    Also if your getting zebras make sure everyone gets a feed as they are extremely fast and greedy :)
