Black Ghost Knifefish

Aquarium Fish Sale offers the only knife fish that is tank raised for the trade. Fortunately the black ghost knife is also the most popular knife fish for aquariums.  In the wild, native fishermen believe the spirits of dead fish reside in the Black Ghost, hence the name. These fish grow very slowly, and frozen or live black worms are their favorite food.
