"We just learned that we accidentally bred our ghost knife fish. We got 2 about 1.5 - 2 years ago with absolutely no clue of their genders. About a two months ago we got home late and happened to notice that both knife fish were out of hiding, so we sat to watch them for a bit since they are so cool and we don’t get to see them frequently. They began swimming together in what I can only describe as a dance. We joked that they were mating, but never expected it to be accurate. We never saw any eggs, we never saw any fry, but today during a water change we discover a new knife fish - about 2-3 inches compared to the original two being about 6-9 inches. Details of our tank: 150 gallons, 78 degrees F, we shoot for weekly water changes of 20% but often in ends up be closer to two weeks. We have a large variety of other inhabitants in the tank, so we feed frozen brine shrimp, frozen blood worms, tropical flake, and algae wafers. We increased the food amount over the past few weeks since many of the smaller fish have been disappearing and we assumed it was due to night hunting. I honestly have no other details since this was completely by chance. From what I have read of the knife fish, this little guy should have died at every single stage, but he made it so we have three of these beauties now!"
