I believe the African Brown Knife gets to a foot, while the Black ghost knife gets to a foot and a half.

the black knife gets 1 foot6inches and the brown knife gets about 10 inches...the black knife will eat a good amount of your stock and the brown wont...i have 2 browns now with eels and loachs and no problems yet to be seen every1 keep to there quarters with little to no stress to 1 another

I love the black ghost knife fish but the brown knife fish is smaller and would let you add more fish.

I love my black ghost knife very interesting fish to watch get one when it's small as my one grew up with my neon tetras and he never touched them just make sure he is full of bloodworms that also deters them from your fish

If I feed it small worms, blood worms, and Im going to try shrimp pellets would that be enough?? And a Brown Knife will be safer with my fish than a BGK?
