Would a Red Tailed Black Shark work in my tank? I understand that RTBS aren't the most friendly fish at times, and it can be hit and miss in a community tank, but I really do at least want to consider this guy. If worst comes to worst, I return him to my LFS.
My question is, could my tank even comfortably house one? It's a 28 gal. bow front.

I wouldn't recommend it in a tank that small.

Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Alright, thanks a lot. Shame, they're gorgeous fish.

I actually picked up a few albino cories the other day, and they're really active little buggers on the floor. But I also saw the shark on display in my LFS and fell madly in love. Ah well, looks like I'm waiting for that 100 gal of my dreams after all
