This is a good thread on how to maintain a tank with sand...http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...strates-20668/

I have a freshwater flounder in my brackish tank. Very cool fish. I have not kept Rope Fish. I have read of them being kept in brackish, but most times I read they are fresh water. There seems to be some confusion in their care requirements. I don't believe they would harm each other, just not sure if their salt level requirements match.

this is what aqualand said
Tank Mates. Feel free to mix these guys with other medium-sized brackish water fishes – African butterflies, dragon gobies, African ropefish (if your flounder’s too big to swallow), mollies, and other livebearers (because they like salt also). Livebearers also provide additional live food periodically. i thouth that they liked it colder too cold for ropefish and live bearers at least
