Marble Ghost Knifefish (Apteronotus eschmeyeri)

$14.99$89.99

An almost never imported knifefish from the Pacific coastal drainage of Colombia, the Longnose Ghost Knife is similar in care to its more well-known relative the Black Ghost Knife. A shy but seemingly social species, these knifefish do well in groups. Little else is known about their habits in the wild.
