What I would do is remove the betta, then feed the other fish. When the other fish is done eating then put the betta back in the tank.

red tail what? shark?

If so, I hear that they can become aggressive as adults. I suggest you separate them.

Red Tailed Sharks are very territorial fish. they will attack anything in their territory, i've read, when they mature. you should remove the betta, and get him his own tank.. what size tank are they in now?

Red Tail Sharks grow to be 6" at maturity, they require a tank of 20gal or more. It's a big fish once grown, usually at a year.

Quote:
Tankmates: It is highly recommended to keep only one labeo bicolor per tank. Depending on each individual fish, most redtail sharks will harass smaller, more peaceful fish. Many cichlid keepers keep redtail sharks in their tank because they can hold their own with some more aggressive fish. Do not keep red tail black sharks with other bottom dwelling fish such as cory cats. They will compete for the same territory and food.
