Will a Red-Tailed Black shark fight with a Bristlenose Pleco?

They are know to fight with any other bottom dweller. How large is the tank?

I wouldn't risk it.

The tank is 29 gallons, there's also 3 platys, 4 Buenos Aires Tetra, and 4 Bleeding Hearts, as well as the bristlenose.

That tank is unfortunately too small for the shark.
They are some what aggressive and need a lot of swimming room.They also get 6" which is way too large for a 29.

I have a redtail black shark, that's the meanest fish I've ever had.He was even very agressive to my three very large cae in a 55 gal. I finally moved him in with my two large yellow labs. So far all is well.//
