I have no direct experience with this interesting fish, Erpetoichthys calabaricus, but from my research I understand it is relatively peaceful though it will eat smaller fish [any that will fit in its mouth]. It is rather shy aside from this, so any "bullying" fish or vigorous, boistrous fish do not sound like a good idea. The larger peaceful characins and peaceful medium catfish are possibilities.
Among cichlids, tilapia, angelfish and severum will work, provided the tank is large. A 30g is not sufficient for any of these, nor for the ropefish itself which will attain close to 3 feet. I hope you are planning on a larger tank soon, a 5-6 foot minimum.
Thanks for the info. What about dwarf Cichlids though?
Like Apistogrammas or Pelvicachromis.
