"To Kyle, I agree that too many people are too quick to tell others they are doing wrong. Your tank sounds fine to me. I had a black ghost knife over ten years ago. He lived for more than 12 years. He grew to about 16 or 17 inches. He was kept in a 55G aquarium. His tank mates at the time were nothing but guppies. And yes it was way beyond the 1 inch rule. As far as the 1 inch rule I too am old school. I knew about keeping bacteria in the filter, water changes, and Ph. 20 or so years ago that is all I cared about or knew about. I must have done something right to keep my ghost for more than twelve years. He also made an 18 hour drive from NC to IN. With that limited knowledge, "back in the day", I managed to keep Tiger Barbs with a breeding pair of angels, (lots of store credit). I still get upset when a fish dies as I am sure you do to. My four year old son is in charge of the flushing as I have taught him that "FISH DIE". I really enjoy the ones that read about the 1 inch rule and then explain that they have more than one BGK. I have read that you should not do this. Although, that is exactly my plan. I am hoping to gather info on the BGK and breed them. It is just a goal I have set. I have a room in the basement that is dedicated for this purpose. I have built aqua bridges to connect all my tanks together. Each tank is set up a little different. I am currently stationed in germany with the army. The water here has a Ph of about 7.8... higher than I prefer but it is what it is. I would love to find out more about your set up. If it is listed on this site give me time to find it as I am new here. Hope to hear from you and any other BGK keepers. "
