Fish Data : Clown knifefish



   This is a fish of the genus Chitala found in IndiaIndonesia , Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia. Main foods are smaller fishes and fish pellets (in aquarium). They have been introduced to some areas of the United States. As an aquarium fish, they are popular in the United States and have likely been released from aquarium environments. South Florida anglers have been known to catch the fish when attempting to bass fish. They are also considered delicacies in other countries especially due to their immense size 

   These fish is easy to kept in aquarium , You should be kept these fish in tanks size about 10-40 gallons (as hatchlings) and 125 gallons and up (juveniles and adults). For a fully grown clown knife fish, the best recommended size tank would be at least 200 gallons or up. They can be kept together as hatchlings and as juveniles but grow very territorial as they age and can inflict serious damage to each other that could be fatal since they have very small scales and have less protection than other fish with scales. They are normally fed feeder fish but can be trained to eat pellets and/or flakes. It is recommended that you should train them to eat pellets as this would be cheaper than buying feeder fish and will maintain the same health and growth rate (possibly an even better one). They are not recommended to be kept in community tanks with smaller fish as they will eat any fish that can fit in their mouths even if they are trained to eat pellets and/or flakes.
