In a few months, I'm planning on buying some centipede knifefish, as a lot of my stocking from my current tanks are moving to a larger or different aquarium, and I'm going to have to restock them. Do you know of any good sites to order them from, that don't charge more than 20$ each (my budget for them is about 170-180$).

Since they're so uncommon, you're unlikely to find them for cheap unless they're tiny. I'd message WetSpot and ask if they can get any in.

Just out of curiosity, is there a scientific name attached to this "centipede knifefish"? I've never heard that as a common name before.

Yes. It's Steatogenys duidae. They're a strange knifefish, considering that they prefer to be in groups of 6+.

After looking at some photos, I see where the name came from. Very interesting appearance. Hope you can find some.
