Acquired: Fish / pet store
Posted Jul 17, 2015
My wife is the resident fish expert was responsbile for the upkeep of our aquarium. I never really gave much notice to the fish in our tank until one day we were at the pet store, and I stopped and stared at the ropefish.
I had never seen this species before that day, and I was awestruck. Needless to say we left the petstore with 3 ropefish in tow, very excited to introduce them to our tank.
Everyone loved our ropefish, espeically our cats who would sit and stare at them for house as the rope fish (Drogon, Reagal and Viscerion) would fly around the tank performing a Dance of Dragons (game of thrones pun)
Sadly however, 2 months later a fungus got into our water and within a span of a week - all three at perished. We were devastated to say the least, so distraught were we that we actually called it quits on the aquarium - and since then have not had any fish in the house.
It was just hard to go on after having something so unique as the ropefish.
