Says they're rare anywho.
Sad that it may come down to breaking the biotope idea but I just HAVE to have something in the mid section of the tank. Those angels are looking better and better at the point.
This is what I want to do with the tank. With more caves obviously.. but barren on the bottom so bichirs can scoot around, then anubias and other floaters on the driftwood, with open patches so bichir can still breach. The plants will provide lot's of shade, and almost split the tank in half, which will hopefully provide success in keeping the angels and the buffalo heads together. There will also be a raft (more shade!) since apparently ropefish like chilling on land sometimes.
Looks good in my head (not in paint apparently) and I feel like I've thought of everything.. wonder how this will play out.
