Rainbow Sharks can live with Rainbowfish And Barbs, They can also live with gouramis, danios, plecos, and rasboras... Hope I Helped! And also, may I please see some of your Rainbow Sharks, I wanna see them because i've never seen any other rainbows other then my sisters RS, FireBelly...So can you show me some pics, its alright if you don't though... Hope I helped!

That's a hard one. :P They can live with just about anything while they're small, but as they grow they get more aggressive. I generally move them to a larger tank with slightly more agressive fish after they get too mean for whatever I've got in the tank. Right now I have a 5+ inch one in a 55 gal, and am going to have to move him soon...

Yeah, you can keep them by themselves. From my experience they kinda like the rush of power from chasing other fish though... lol. Maybe you could keep him with feeder guppies? They'll reproduce like mad, but as he gets older, he'll keep them in check. He'll grow faster with live food. Plus they're rather entertaining. That is, if you're ok with the whole feeder thing. I know some people aren't. :)

&& yeah, I know!! I keep him in there with feeder goldfish, & go through them like mad!

I agree with this poster. Rainbow Sharks need at least a 48in tank. They're semi-aggressive and are best keep with robust fish like danios, barbs, larger rasboras and larger tetra like congos, Cambodian, etc. Here's the profile click on the name Rainbow Shark.

You don't need an air pump if you have an adequate filter. If you don't know whether the filter is producing enough air, then it won't hurt to have one. Plus sharks like to have lots of hiding places, and mine love live plants. Plants also help with the water quality.
