We were thinking maybe some tiger barbs, since they had them in the tank with the sharks at Petsmart...
The tiger barbs would probably also outgrow the tank. I'm sorry if I'm sounding rude saying all this, I am not trying to. As for the rainbow shark, I guess it could be fine temporarily with very few other fish in the tank, but it will probably eventually need to be moved into about 55 gallons. If your friend can eventually get the bigger tank before it outgrows the 10 gallon then that would work.
