"Before I would blame the fish for being aggressive, why don't you look at how many soon-to-be-large fish you have in that tank. First of all, the albino knife and the african brown knife both grow to ~12 inches. Those two alone (if that, and assuming you had enough caves, plants etc to break line of sight) would be enough in the 55 gallon. Both of those clown knives grow to over 2 feet long. Just in case you didn't realize it, the 55 gallon is FAR too small for even one of those to even turn around in without having trouble. The ghost knife gets to about 18 inches. So why don't you re-evaluate your tank. Your fish are far far far too over crowded in there. They may be smaller now, but if you're planning on keeping them, I would suggest something much larger. Or something in the area of putting the royal clowns in a 75-100 gallon tank, and the others in the 55. At least that would be better. If you crowd too many fish into a tank, of course they will be aggressive. Especially fish that are listed as semi-aggressive. They all need territory of their own. I have a Featherfin knifefish in a 55 gallon (the ONLY knife in there) with various other tankmates. In my experience, it has been very tolerant of other tank mates (because he has SPACE). If you are looking into one of these, just make sure you have it in at LEAST a 55 gallon tank, with caves big enough for it."
