Black Ghost Knife Fish
They are very peaceful and friendly with all but the smallest of aquarium mates and are even known for taking food directly from the hand of their owner. This species is not a fussy eater and is happy with dry, frozen or live foods. The coloration, though not as impressive as its size, is very distinct to this fish. They are jet black with a white stripe on their back that stretches from the head to the dorsal fin. They also have two white bands on their tail towards the end of their bodies.
