Black Ghost Knife Information

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have recently moved a Black Ghost Knife to my larger tank with other fish.

In this tank I have a fish that started chasing this (not sure of the name of the fish, something venus?) and I have now noticed that the Knife is missing the end of it's tail.

Does anyone know if this will grow back or do I need to take some action on this?

The Knife is moving around okay and swimming normally. It has also been the only fish in the tank to successfully share a hiding hole with my Sail Fin Pleco.

Also, I have attached a photo of the fish that was chasing the Knife and having a go at it's tail. If any one is able to identify this for me it will be great as this was given to me as an unknown species.

This is currently in a 4x1.8x1.8 FT tank on a temporary basis while I setup the new tank form them.

Thank you for your help,

nimbochromis venustus

all africans are attracted to white patches

this is standard behaviour and why smaller bristlenose/bgk tend to get nipped tails

as long as bgk has a good place to hide and doesnt get an infection it should heal ok
