Clouded Knifefish

Once in a while we get fish that really aren't seen in the trade - one of these is the rare clouded knifefish from Peru. Similar in many ways to the black ghost knifefish, the clouded knifefish has a white and black marble pattern. Little is known about the clouded knifefish, but based on our experience these rare aquarium fish should be handled like black ghost knifefish.
