Rope Fish (Erpetoichthys calabaricus)
The African Ropefish is closely related to the Bichirs and resemble them quite a bit and come from the same primitive origins.
The Ropefish is also known as the Reedfish or snakefish.
Can reach over a foot in size.
They enjoy the company of other Rope Fish so it is best to keep 2-3 in a tank.
Current size is about 8-10".
Received next day as promised. Very well packaged. Both fish arrived healthy and adapted to their new home well. Would and plan on buying from Petzone again!
What a great addition to the tank. He loves playing with the bichirs, eels, and goby. He is a shy eater, but he is looking pretty good so I know he is eating at some point. Swims everywhere and very active during full lights on. This is my sneakiest fish. He can squeeze into the tiniest places and I had to change several things about my tanks to keep him out of my fluval fx6 filters where he has been found many times in the past week. Now he is properly trapped in~!
received this guy in great quality on arrival. really nice fish and plan to buy more fish from this store. but sadly i spent more on shipping than on the fish
