I wouldn't put a Shark in a small, peaceful community tank. They can grow to 6"+ long, and they can be very aggressive. They really need to be kept in a much larger tank, with other fish that will grow to their size or bigger, and that share their temperament.Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

Not a good match for your tank at all, It's good you asked. :-D
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Agree with the above,
The RTS will chase the Tetras until they die and eat them, I had one and thought it was fine but when the lights went out it went on the hunt, killed two red eyes before I realised what it was up to.1) 140 gallon with 70 gallon sump. 2 German Rams, 50 neons , 16 Schwarzi cory, 12 harlequin rasbora, 10 Hengals Rasbora, 2 Bulldog Plecs, 4x dwarf Gouramis, 8 Yellow Boesemani Rainbows and loads of assasin snails. internal 1000 filter + external Fluval 406, fluval U2 to transfer to my QT when needed
2) 70gallon, and 15 penguin and 8 red eye tetra, 2 Kribensis, 2 Bristle nosed plec's with an Enheim pro filter.
3) 20 gallon QT
4) algae rock tank,

Also, your Cory is a schooling fish and would really appreciate a school.120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers

I've got a Red Tailed Shark in a 125 gallon tank with Cichlids. It's probably the meanest thing in my tank. Attacks my Oscar all the time.
They look cool but they do not have a personality to match.
