If you want to get a clown knife it will be fine in a 55 gallon aquarium for awhile. Until about 1 1/2 years when it gets over like 16inches long. But I have 1 in my 55 gallon and it is very happy with no space problems. Hope this helps. :)

I have a 5" black ghost knife fish in my 44 Gallon Tank along with 4 tiger barbs (1 albino), 2 flying foxes, 2 6" Firemouth Cichlids and a 10" long pleco. These knife fish are very shy. Mine will only eat if the lights are off. Mine is also a very picky eater; he only eats frozen bloodworms. I would only recommend this fish to experienced aquariasts. They are very cool.

Shannon your tank is way too small for your knife fish. I would recommend a tank no smaller than 4ftx18in with lots of wood or rock caves for them to hide, and feed him frozen blodworms, brine shrimp and sinking pellets. My knifefish also loves my angelfish eggs!

I purchased my clown knife (named "Buck") about four months ago. He was only about 3 1/2 inches long at that time. He is now 12 inches long. He is very friendly. Comes to the top of the tank when I approach as if he knows he's getting fed. He is in a 125 gallon tank along with a Shovel nosed Catfish, 3ea. 4-6" discus Fish, a 5" silver arowana and 4ea. 5-7" plecos. They all get along beautifully. This is just one of six tanks that I have in my home.

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!
