Nice video, However That tank is way too small for the Ghost Knife.
 
IMO that tank is too small for all those fish.

 i agree, too small for bgk, max size is around 18 inches. The blood parrots grow to 8 inches.
I commend you for making the good call of purchasing only 1 bgk.

I truly believe that BGK should not be sold in LFS, They look so cute and small and quite often the person selling them has no idea what they are selling or the special care they need.
 
IMO a 6 foot tank that is 2 feet wide is the minimum they need, They also need a nice cave where they can hide during the day.

Ya I know they can get really big. I researched it before.

And also bought one fish only coz they emit electrical signals for finding food. Keeping two in a medium space meant sure shot fighting among the two. This aquarium also has 2 caves. One big hollow tree trunk and a glass tube. Also this is just a grow out tank. BGK are a little bit of slow growers. Mine has grown around 2.5 inch in 6-7 months. But they do grow large. Once it grows a little bit bigger, I will transfer them to a 55g.
