Glass Knifefish

The Transparent knifefish, or simply the Glass knifefish, loves live black worms but the species will adapt to frozen foods. In the fish tank these are marvelous creatures with unique movement. Knifefish are fragile to ship, and please transition slowly to the aquarium, they are sensitive to sudden PH and temperature changes. Please ensure the aquarium is at least 30 gallons. These fish are more active at night, but will use their electrolocation powers to scavenge for food during the day.
