"I have an African Brown Knifefish in a 20 gallon tank with a Leopard Ctenopoma and two African Butterflyfish. The tank is planted with three Amazon Sword Plants, four Egyptian Lilies and about 7 Java Ferns. All the fish in the tank are 3.5 inches long. I know this setup is too small in the long term but I am saving up for a larger 55 gallon. All the fish in the tank get along relatively fine. The Butterflyfish will occasionally chase each other around but the Leopard Ctenopoma and Knifefish never get involved in the top-level disputes. The Ctenopoma and Knifefish do occasionally squabble but never leave any marks on each other. It is basically just a chase around the tank and after about one lap they go their separate ways. I am not overly concerned about this as MINOR squabbles should always be expected in community tanks. Anyway. the African Brown Knifefish is a very delightful occupant of my tank. Feed him a mixed diet of bloodworms, brine shrimp, beef heart, rosy red minnows, ghost shrimp, apple snails and the occasional earthworm. I almost never see him during the day except when I am cleaning the tank. But when the lights are off he comes out for all to see! I strongly recommend this fish."
