Can a Jack Dempsey and a Rope Fish co-exist?
Just wondering, because im interested in merging them into the same tank. My Jack eats earthworms, and since the rope looks similar im hoping he wont try to eat him, although im also hoping the rope can defend himself and they can co-exist.
Some Dempsey's tolerate other fish of different body style and size. But most often, i think this combination is a bad idea. The Dempsey will likely cause harm to a Rope Fish.
Ok thanks for the help. Do you think if I bought a new Jack Dempsey, and introduced him to the tank that the Rope fish is in, that he might be able to get along? Also, do you think Tiger Barbs would leave a Rope fish alone?
