The ghost knife fish, also known as the black ghost knife fish, is a freshwater fish native to South America. It is a popular aquarium fish due to its unique appearance and behavior.

The ghost knife fish has a distinctive, elongated body that is black or dark brown in color. It also has a long, thin, and flexible tail. However, what sets this fish apart is its electric organ, which runs along the base of its body and allows it to generate weak electric fields to sense its surroundings and communicate with other fish.

In the wild, ghost knife fish are primarily nocturnal and feed on small fish, insects, and crustaceans. In captivity, they can be fed a variety of foods, including frozen or live food such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and small fish.

Ghost knife fish are not recommended for beginner aquarium owners as they have specific care requirements. They require a large tank with plenty of hiding spots, as they are known to be shy and reclusive. They also need a well-oxygenated tank with plenty of filtration due to their high waste output. In addition, they are sensitive to changes in water conditions and should not be housed with aggressive fish.

Despite their care requirements, ghost knife fish can make fascinating and unique additions to an aquarium. Their striking appearance and electric organ make them a fascinating fish to observe.
