Feeding my Ropefish

Postby GuitarShark » Sun Jul 21, 2019 1:50 pm

Hi guys. I am having a little bit of trouble. My Ropefish is having trouble with other fish stealing his food. At first, the cichlids were stealing it and now the cats are. Should I try putting his food in a bottle or maybe his cave? Thank you! :fish:

The ropefish will be happier if you give him a tank customized to his needs. Being a tankmate with mbuna amd Synodontis may not be an ideal environment for him.

It actually works. They don’t pick on him. They kind of avoid him.

But he is not getting enough to eat.

I figured it out. I put a bottle in there and now he happily eats blood worms I put in the bottle. None of the other fish can access it.
