Question Black Ghost Knife fish

Hello all,
I am looking into getting a Black Ghost Knife fish and unsure of if my tank and other tank mates will get along together. I currently have a 55 gallon tank, inside the tank I have five Giant Danios, three Striped Danios, three Silver Hatchets, 2 Harlequin Rasbora 2 Plecos, two Angel Fish, and a Blue Lobster. I was wondering if adding a black ghost knife fish will cause harm in the tank. I have been looking into the knife fish and they seem like amazing fish to have in a tank but unsure how it will get along with the other fish. Any information will help.

Thank you

Re: Black Ghost Knife fish

They can get over a foot long, so a 55 might not be big enough. For this reason, I have always looked past them at the LFS, so unfortunately I will not be of much help :(

Currently setup (down to 20!):
8x 10g grow out tanks + 1 microcrab tank
1x 20g female crayfish tank
1x 20g Endler tank
2x 20g long crayfish breeders
1x 29g breeder for Mosquito Fish
1x 29g blue crayfish growout tank
1x 45g tall Super Reds
1x 55g Wife's Shrimp tank
1x 60g Platys
1x 75g Super Reds
1x 75g + 20g long sump Cats, Pickerel, Bait, and Punkin

Waiting for room:
4x random <5 gallon
12x 5g
15x 10g
1x 17g
2x 29g
2x 55g
1x 75g

Re: Black Ghost Knife fish

It will eat all of the other fish except maybe the angels. A 55 is too small, try a 90.
