"Hello, I was just reading your information about the black ghost, and I would just like to give a small update - We bred this fish in our tank a couple of years ago, truthfully, we got lucky and we were quite ecstatic to find we had managed. At the time we thought we were the first ever to have bred these fish, but it turned out a guy in Finland had done it before us :) However, also a tank owner in Queensland, Australia has been able to keep two babies. Our little guy was found behind the filtration map, as the egg had been sucked in – there he developed without any disturbance, and so was the only survivor. The male of the original breeding pair died, and the female was given away to another black ghost owner, and we have not had them for a while. Only weeks ago, we bought ten black ghosts, so hopefully we will manage again. We keep them in 520 liters tank, with sand on one side and gravel on the other. Many roots and rocks, no surface plants, and give them lots of food, preferably red mosquito larvae. The filtration is very strong, and I reckon we were "lucky" when the egg was sucked in. It could develop undisturbed on the back side of the "back to nature" background, where the other fish never entered. I am sure there are several others that can now report that they have bred them, but at least I can guarantee you that it has been done :) "
