Answer by bettachris
green knives are somewhat browish but still see though. they will max out around 5-6 inches long, and very tolerant of other fishes.
Eigenmannia virescens is there name.
They are reported to get about 15 inches, but i have yet to see one this large, and even at this size, very well with community fishes.
15 inch green knife will be fine in a 55 gallon, where a 2 foot BGK will not.
