Black Ghost Knifefish in Stock Tank?
So I bought a black ghost knifefish about a month ago and unfortunately did not realize his growth rate and maximum size of 18+ inches before I purchased him (I know, terrible fish parenting on my part). Right now heís in a 36 gallon tank that I know heíll grow out of soon. I would love to keep him instead of rehoming him (his name is Lucifer, heís currently about 4 inches long and eats out of my hand already), but I canít afford a 100+ gallon tank.
My friend mentioned a stock tank since theyíre significantly cheaper, but figured Iíd see if anyone has tried housing one in a tank like that successfully? Or if thereís other alternatives that might work for this guy?
Thanks in advance!
