55 gallon tank? Are you insane?

This fish will grow at least 3 1/2 FEET LONG in your aquarium. A 55 gallon tank is 4'x1'x1.5'. Aba Aba knives require tanks that are a minimum of 2' wide, and the smallest tank dimension should be 4' for an adult specimen.

Hi, I had purchased this fish [pair] a day ago which were 4"in length. They died the next day due lack of O2 supply, 4 6hrs. I then bought another pair which are smaller than the earlier. The new ones swim head to head very often. I want 2 know if they are aggreing with each other or fighting, and my tank size is (LxBxH) 18x9x12... is this enough.

I just bought one of these fish, and it seems to get along with all of my fish, even my pictus cat. It is an interesting fish but does seem a little shy.

My black knife fish just died and I am going to get another asap. He grew to be 20"..and I had him for 6 years. He never bothered anything larger than a guppy. He ate only when the lights were out..so my husband got a blue light set up so we could watch him eat. He became very tame. I miss him. He was 4" long when I got him and I paid $25.00 at the time. He was worth every penny. I housed him in a 55 gallon and he did just fine these last 6 years. If you want an interesting fish..this is the one.

Back for an update, well my Clown Knife that I got few weeks ago is doing fine and its in my 30 gallon now. It's kinda shy around me still, which is fine and natural. Also it's with the 2 Kissing Gourami's, 4 fiddler crabs, my pleco(6inches now), some gold fish and my puffer, all doing well!

Gymnarchus niloticus is a choiced fish for ceremonial purposes (especially marriage)in Africa.It is highly priced.infact it could cost four times higher than same size of catfishes.

Hello there again its Lan Phan, I recently purchased a six inch Royal Clownknife from a local pet store here in Florida where I live. I paid about fifty dollars for he or she but it was well worth it since they are kinda hard to find anywhere. My goal is to ween it off live foods and instead feed it dried foods with much more nutrients. I'll keep you all posted on future updates and oh yeah, he or she is in my 1600 gallon aquarium.

Today I got a Clown Knife and it's getting along with my Oscar, Tyke, which I think is very cool to see and they like to stay around each other looking for food, they actually just sit. I put a cup in the tank too, to make a small home for it until it gets bigger. It's about 7inches now and with the Oscar. They are both in the 120 gallon with a Black Finned Shark, a Puffer Figure Eight, and a few fiddler crabs, and all getting along well!

I just recently purchased one of these from my local pet store and it is a great fish so far. It's surprisingly peaceful and a great fish to watch. I keep it in my 20-30 gallon fish tank with 3 Opaline gouramis and 2 tinfoil barbs. They are all getting along well so far. Overall a great fish.
