black ghost fish AKA apteronotus albifrons

Hi. Well, I am trying to find out some info on the black ghost fish, AKA apteronotus albifrons (according to my mini fish atlas by Dr. axelrod.) I bought this book mostly for the photos--it doesnt have much detailed info on each fish, just general like the preferred ph and a few other general things. It does list this fish as peaceful, and the fish was sold to me by a pet shop which said it was peaceful and nocturnal. However, as you may have read on the messageboard, i have caught this fish (in action) mauling and killing some of my smaller fish, including a marbled hatchet and several small mollies (not quite full grown).

Any info you could provide about your own experiences with this fish will be appreciated. :)
