Comments

A scaleless electric fish. It can be trained to lay in its owners hand and be fed. It needs a cave and vegetation to hide. It can grow extremely large in the right environment.

The Clown Knife and Brown Knife Fish can get very nasty and end up devouring almost every other fish in the tank.
