Red tail shark?

Anybody every try to keep a betta with a red tail shark?

I plan on keeping the sharks "home" as far left as i can since i doubt the betta will venture anywhere near the side with the filter. Plus, its a 75 gallon tank so i think there would be plenty of room

I've heard that red tailed sharks are aggressive so I don't think one with a betta would be a good idea.

they can get between 4-6" too and will attack other fish when they are a little large.

if your going to house them together you will NEED LOTS of plants, driftwood, etc things for both to hide in and call their own territories

Maybe with a plakat but I would never chance it with a long-finned betta, they are just too awkward and slow. Also, unless you arenot filtering your 75 well enough the filtration will be too strong for a long-finned betta IMO. I have hoever worked short-finned varieties into communities successfully.
