    I think that's the whole purpose :eek:

    If it was me - Rope Fish.
    Not really suitable size for the other options :confused:

    BICHIRS :D:D:D

    well for 200l ropes would be better, bichirs get fat and chunky when they age

    @Ladysphinx ,I also like this idea ... lets give everyone a break from their threads being derailed!!

    @Bradley Bunch ... well.. if it was me.. stingray and a tiger providing you prepared to give them a big enough tank
    Beware od bichir and ray combination
    Some bichirs are ok others when they get large they bite the rays

    I have had Poly senegalus & Poly delhezi in the past

    Also had Rope/Reedfish in the past. Really loved them. One of my fave fish, hence my Forum name.
    Even tried to keep them with my Discus, but they were disturbing the youngsters, and they weren't feeding properly. So the Reeds had to go unfortunately.

    Currently have Poly senegalus and Poly ornatipinnus

    Animal Kingdom in Blue Hills had Rope Fish a while ago.
    Aqua Empire in Muldersdrift have 2 rays at the moment. Don't ask me the type though. They are flat and have a tail sticking out one end.

    Google is my best friend....
    They look like Motoro rays.
