I want to get a rope fish, but I have no idea what they eat, and when I looked it up all I could find out was that they eat worms...but what kind, frozed, freeze dried, fresh? I am so confused please help!

Oh I almost forgot, I also was wondering what kinds of fish would make good tank-mates with a rope fish?

They will eat small fish if they get hungry. I did a search on the web(search yahoo for tropical rope fish) and a rope fish can grow to 15 inches. Someone was feeding them frozen bloodworms in addition to the fresh food, so I guess you can go either way. I assume tank mates would have to be fish that won't fit in their mouths unless you want to provide expensive snacks. BTW they are also really good at getting out of the tank, so you need a tight lid!

Woo! Species tank only and a large one at that. My friend has one and they will eat just about ANYTHING live as stated above, make no mistake in a community tank no matter how cute and small they are when you get them.
