Knifefish in a 125g?

Maci14

Is a 125g (72"Lx18"Dx21"H) big enough for a black ghost Knife fish (apteronotus albifrons)? My EBJD passed and ive been looking for another fish to add. I really love everything about BGK's but I'm just not sure a 125g will be big enough to house a 20" adult. 20" long is about 1/4th the tanks length and turning around would be difficult. Only thing thats in the tank right now are some yoyo and zebra loaches.

Any other Knife fish that could live comfortably in a 125g that can be housed without a group? I'm thinking an African knife fish (xenomystus nigri) may be ok, but was hoping for something slightly larger.

Zebra knifefish (if you can find them) would work. The get about 12" long.

Centipede knives look cool and stay small [about 8"]. Trumpet knives are larger, i think about 12" but have small mouths so i think their mostly worm feeders. Brown ghosts stay small also i think. Really neat, oddball fish, perfect for a big tank.
