usually it can be housed with certain fish in a tank of that size. the tank should be a minimum of 4 feet

That chart shows they are compatible with other fish, just not of their own kind. I was reading some reviews and people were keeping them with other fish perfectly fine.

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.
This sounds pretty good. Don't mix them with smaller and more delicate fish like neons or Angelfish. They'd do better with robust fish like larger tetra, Barbs, and Danios. Here's the profile Red Tailed Shark (Epalzeorhynchos bicolor )

It also says. "the red tailed shark is actually not a shark. The "shark" name came from the dorsal fin this freshwater tropical fish possesses resembling an actual shark."

usually, I remember helping them research what he'd need. My ex had saw him at the store and wondered if they could put him in their big tank (only had a pleco, two angel fish and a school of 6 neon tetras). They concluded it could so they went and got one. It grew really fast and once the neons were all gone it started nipping everyone else's fins until it grew big enough to take out the angel fish one by one and then lastly it killed the pleco. Evil little thing. After that it refused to eat flakes. They starved it for two weeks before giving in a buying feeder goldfish :/
