    Photo of the knife fish? To determine type, genus, specie, etc. Please

    The below I copied from "www.animal-world.com/encyclo/fresh/Knifefish/Knifefish.php"

    "Knifefish are found in two groups. The largest group are the Gymnotiformes. These are the electric knifefishes, and are also known as the Neotropical or South American knifefishes. These include the Glass Knifefishes, Sand Knifefishes, Naked-back Knifefishes, and the Ghost knifefishes. They are strictly freshwater fish and are found in Central and South America. There are about 150 described species in 32 genera, and another 50 or so species that are known but yet to be described. The actual number of species in the wild still to be discovered, is unknown.

    The other group of knifefishes are members of the Notopteridae family belonging to the Osteoglossiformes Order. They are known as the Featherbacks, or Featherfin Knifefishes, and Knifefishes. They are found in Southeast Asia and Africa. This is a small group of knife fish, with only ten species in four genera. These fish are generally smaller fish that inhabit freshwater or brackish environments. Although they swim in a manner similar to the Gymnotiformes, they are not closely related.

    Now just to confuse the issue, there are also a few species that have the term 'knifefish' used in their common name due to their body shape. These are not true knife fish, but are actually in the order Perciforms, which are the 'perches' or 'perch-like' fishes. These are the Grey knifefish Bathystethus cultratus, the Blue knifefish Labracoglossa nitida, Collared knifefish or Finscale razorfish Cymolutes torquatus, and the Jack-knifefish Equetus lanceolatus. These fish will not be found here, rather they will be included in the Perches and Perch-like fish category."
