Rope fish!

Just picked up a rope fish at my LFS. I have to say, it's my favorite yet. They are so cool and prehistoric looking. Pics:

Looks like a nice specimen!

Hopefully you got a big tank for him, they can get huge!

I would say so, my buddy has one that is probably just over a foot in a 55g. It's always fun to scare the wives with.
