Redtail Shark Fish

Does anyone have these fish? If so what other fish do you have in with a Redtail?

Ok thanks. Here is what Petco says.

Redtail Shark

The term "shark" is applied to many unrelated fish with a similar body shape. These hardy and curious fish add personality and character to an aquarium. The Redtail Shark is primarily a deep black color with a brilliantly contrasted red tail and white tip on the dorsal fin. This particular shark does best as the only shark with similarly sized fish in a planted tank with driftwood and rocks. Will not do well with other Redtail Sharks, or Rainbow Sharks.

lol, I dont know where you get this idea. they can be kept with other fish. but shouldnt be kept with other sharks. they are aggressive towwards eachother and some times other fish. Its safer to put fish that are compatible with them than other sharks.

they probably killed off the fish due to tank size. they should optimally have many ground decorations to establish a territory and a minimum of a 3-4 foot 55 gallon tank

They had a 55+ size tank (I don't remember the size but it was huge) it had a mix of live and fake plants, with tons of caves/rocks. It started out with the small fish and worked its way up until it killed everything in the tank. The last time I saw it, it was in the tank by its self and they wanted to get rid of it.
