If you don't know what a tripod fish is, you should google it. It's a deep sea fish that stands on the ocean floor using three of its fins. Pretty cool. I was wondering if anyone (doesn't have to be anyone on this site) has ever tried to keep tripod fish in an aquarium. I think that with very low light, a sandy bottom, and heavy water pressure, someone could keep a couple in a big aquarium.
don't think house owners can provide what it need to survive esp the pressure it's accustomed too. they use pressure chambers to study deep sea creatures i don't think we can afford one ...ever.
Just remembered I had posted this. I didnt mean necessarily anyone that was a normal fishkeeper. I was including the scientific labs with the million dollar government grants.
anglerfish and frogfish "crawl" with their fins and can be kept in aquariums. gobies will sit on their fins as well.
That's definately a unique creature..I couldn't imagine having a tank of those..lol..kind of creepy in a way..they look like Salvador Dali painting..lol
