my experience with ropefish is as fallows,
They love to hide, one i was looking after disapeared for 3 weeks before i found him in the tank again, they are not agressive though they are preditory, and may attempt to eat small slow moving fish, they are very strong and fit just about anywhere, so a tight lid is a must. bloodworms are the food of choice of the ropefish I kept, though they where small 5"-6" and they would eventually need more meaty foods, like feeder fish and beef heart.
they are cool to watch, though they are mostly nocternal hunters, also be careful because their mouth opens alot wider then it looks, so even fish you think may be safe may also be in danger
but if you can get a tank with a good lid, and dont mind keeping bigger fish with him I think rope fish are awsome and have lovely personality.
