our tank (an aqua one ar980) has pez fish... mainly barbs and gouramis :( we do have a black ghost knife. his name is scooter cos he scoots around on top of the water. we bought him 3 months ago and he has doubled in size (from about 5cm to 10+)

i used to have an oscar who had attitude. you could pat him on the head and stuff :p. ill see if i can dig up some pics of him

here ya go. he was about 25 - 28 cms long. i got him when he was just 4 - 5 cms. its amazing how much they grow... i knew they got big but i didnt realise he was going to need 2 tank upgrades! i used to love how he would trash his tank by ripping up the plants, knocking stuff over and sucking stones up and spitting them into a pile in the corner :-D
