I have had conflicting reports of putting neons in with black ghost knife fish, I was told that the BGK would eat the neons and others tell me that he won't touch them, does any one have any idea on which is the right way to go.

I have in the tank

1 BGK
5 Kuli loaches
8 dwarf gouramis
3 swordtails
3 bristlenose catfish

Sorry but the only reason you got conflicting reports is because some people have no idea what they're talking about. They form their opinions after keeping baby fish together for a couple months at most, and then happily go out giving advice to anyone else as if they were experts on the matter.

BGK's are nocturnal predators of insect larvae and worms, but they grow to 50 cm in length and will happily swallow anything that fits into their mouths. Neons are only safe while the BGK is really small, which obviously won't last for more than a few months.
