Can an African brown knifefish coexist with a black ghost knifefish?

    Yes, they can can, but only if you have a large enough tank and plenty of hiding places for the two and also at the same time, be ready for squabbles because the black gf can be fiesty.

    Most definitely they can. I have Ghost Knifes, African Knifes, Clown Knifes, and another brown type of Knife with a yellow streak down its back, that I am unsure of the name, all living in the same 55 gallon tank. They seem to all get along well except for the Clowns, now that they are getting larger they have become more aggressive so I will be putting them into their own tank soon.

I got 2 big fish tanks, 350 gal with too wolffish, a jack demsey, about 3 others in there too, & 75 gal wide, that holds my gymnotus knifefish or banned fish, I kinda wanna put knifefish in the big tank but I think my wolffish will kill it.

If I put a african brown knife with a electric yellow cichlid, will the knifefish destroy it?

    These fish are not compatible. If the Knife can fit the Cichlid in his/her mouth he/she will eat the Cichlid. If the Cichlid is bigger than this it will likely torture and skin the Knife.

    You have it backwards the knife is not an aggressive species it is predatory however cichlids are extremely territorial and just all around mean in my opinion most cichlids should only be kept with other cichlid species the exception to this are rams and dwarf cichlids.

I was wondering where I could buy one of the Zebra Knifefish at, because I really want one. Any tips on where I could buy one, they seem small enough to put in a 55 gallon. I want to see him grow into the tank and again if you know where I could at least order one online or anything let me know.
