Thank you all soo much for your advise.

- the only reason I was thinking of a beta is because the aquarium I purchased the BHK from had a beta in with 30 BGK and he looked happy.

- my tank is 100L

- could you recommend any top swimmers, would like medium
Size but any will do

- could I get another BGK? Or another 1 or 2 BKC?

- unfortunately no matter how long I researched setting up a tank I was talked into by the aquarium to set up & add fish straight away. My filter has the media in it and I am testing the water daily of not more to catch any changes in the water.

With only 100L I wouldn't add anything, and definitely upgrade soon. For some reason I thought I remembered you having something like 50 gallons, but you have half that... Mumma is right, the tank is overstocked as it is now. Also, the stocking at the LFS is not usually a good example of proper stocking. However, if you want to see more of your knife you could add a large piece of clear tubing for him to hide in. It will make him more comfortable but you will still be able to see him. And your tank hasn't finished cycling? Keep a good eye on him, I don't think ghost knifes are good fish to cycle with since they are scaleless. Scaleless fish are usually more sensitive to water parameters.
