Clown knifefish

Latin Name:  Chitala chitala

General Size:  26 x 12”

With a definitely unique body design the clown knifefish (also called the “featherback”) can be found in the Notopteridae family. This tropical species is native to Asia, particularly the Indo-China region. With the exception of the single dorsal fin there are no additional fins present on the upper side of the fish however, almost the entire underside is lined with a continuous anal fin that becomes the caudal fin. The clown knifefish is strictly freshwater feeding on aquatic insects, mollusks, shrimp and small fishes. Due to their popularity amongst aquarists this species has found its range expanding to places such as South Florida (this specimen was taken from Lake Ida, FL).
