I've always wanted one of these, what are they like to care for? I saw some in Pets at Home a while back, maybe they could get some for you?

What you got in your community? I'd like to try them in my puffer tank, the puffs seem to get along fine with the eels so i cant see the problem with a rope fish.

Are they rope fish ok with syno cats, plecs and corys?

I've just been reading up on em, says they are carnivorus and will eat smaller fish,especially at night when sleeping close to or on the bottom. So your corys etc,may be in danger Shocked
