This amazing fish is still housed with his old buddies, 2 Frontosa and a Silver Shark, in his original digs. Seemingly thriving!
I have read everything available and the advice varies. Some say they are a peaceful soul who would love my large 90g community tank. (3 angels, 2 dwarf gouramis, 3 swords, 2 yoyo loaches (temp), 2 cory and 2 BN pleco).
Any experience with ghosts?
(I really did want to add a snakeskin gourami)

I had a ghost in with community fish. He actually did great. I think he slurped up some of the smaller inhabitants like cardinal tetras, but he was also living with larger black skirt tetras who he never seemed to bother.

I’m not sure if he would get nipped at, though, if the angels are aggressive. I’m guessing not but i know angels can be nippy.

Great news!
I hate putting anything into that tank that isn't staying. It's just too darn hard to re-catch them :inpain:
The yoyos will likely stay even though they mess with my plants :sour: I just can't catch them (short of draining the tank, and removing the rocks, agh!).

Angels do fine with ghost knifes - its more likely that the knife may confuse the angels fins for food and take a bite due to their poor eyesight.
