A quick update:

The knife group now stands at one. I lost one of the four to unknown reasons and things went wild, the dominant knife decided to shred the smallest knife whom I rescued but later died from Dropsy. The second-in command didn't get so lucky and I got back from school to a floating fish. It is weird that two worked together, four worked together but when one died the chain crumbled. It seems a larger group would be the best way to work around this.

Sorry to hear that and great advice about a larger group. Was thinking about adding one in with Senegal's.

Still can add one as long as it’s close to adult size.

They do well with polys.

Yes I will do more someday, but with university coming up and tight budgets that's a project for another day

If you ever get more again you will have to stimulate the rain season to get Knifefish to spawn.
