Thread: Will this work?

  1. Default Will this work?

    Okay right now my stock list for my 55 gallon planted tank includes the following:

    gold barbs
    cherry barbs
    honey gouramis
    albino corys
    harlequin rasboras

    im wondering if a red tail black shark could work in here. Thanks

    I wouldn't try a red tail black shark. The others would be perfectly fine, but the shark will become territorial over time and the fish you're already going to stock are incompatible with that one's behavior. He's more of a semi-aggressive/aggressive fish, while the others are generally peaceful. It'll probably pick on the corys when it gets larger and more mature, since it'll attempt to claim the entire bottom as its' territory.

    You'd be better off with a more peaceful catfish/pleco.

    You could do it in place of the cories as said on another thread.

    I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

    You could swap out the corys with a Raphael Cat (Chocolate, Spotted or Striped). They have a natural defense to more aggressive fish and they'll keep mostly to themselves. Only drawback is they're nocturnal, like most other catfish. But, that'll give you another bottom dweller, if you wanted to flesh out the bottom more.
