12-27-2006, 06:01 PM
Ive got a black ghost fish in my tank with 6 guppies and an elephant nose fish. will i have problems with them together?? the guy i bought the fish of said that he didnt think there would be a problem but said that if i had any problems with them i could bring 1 of them back and exchange it for another fish. 3 of my guppies are pregnant so will the other two fish eat the fry?? I live in spain so i dont really no how much this guy actually knows about fish.

Help would be appreciated . Thanks alot

i think the elephant nose fish will do some damage to the guppies.
although iv'e got a green terror with some guppies and an arowana they don't bother them yet because they were in the tank first. i personally dont think it's a good idea

I would be more worried about the elephant nose. They are very sensitive to water conditions and can get very territorial.

im pretty sure the ghost knife will eat the guppies once it can fit them in its mouth

the elephant nose and ghost knife may but heads as they are similar in hunting styles and territorial. Meaning usually one per tank
