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.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
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.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

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

A small school of pygmy cories would add a lot more activity to that area of the tank while fitting in with your community stocking.

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
