Good community fish for river tank..need suggestions


Setting up a river tank for clown loaches. I want to have a ghost knife fish in there as well. Any suggestions on some schooling fish that would like the faster moving water that would be on the larger side to not get eaten by the ghost knife fish. Water ph is 8, water is hard.

Congo tetras, giant danios, hampala sharks, any good-sized rainbowfish, any of the plecostomus...I'll keep adding as I think of stuff.

If you want something larger, I'm always a big fan of apollo sharks.

Looking for something not agressive that would nip at the Black Ghost Knife.

glassfish are cool, they school and seems to like swimming in the flow.
