Offering Chitala ornata (Clown Knifefish).

A popular freshwater aquarium fish, clown knife fish are suitable for only the largest of aquaria where they can reach up to 3 feet in length, with bulk to match. They are easily identified by their intriguing anal fin, which extends the length of their lower body and undulates as they swim through the water. A predatory fish, they will actively hunt at night for any fish that will fit in their mouths, as such they prefer live food in aquaria, though they may be trained to accept commercial foods. Active jumpers, its recommended to maintain a tight fitting lid.
