The issue would be more on space at the bottom. How big is the tank?they are very territorial and having one willl limit your choice of bottom dwellers. I would keep only one in a 55g to minimize territorial disputes but it depends as well what other bottom dwellers you plan to keep.

I'd rather be keeping a small group of more peaceful bottom dwellers than rainbow sharks honestly.

I have a Rainbow shark and a 18 Cories on the bottom of my tank without issue. The Rainbow shark is fairly private and likes his hollow log. I am sure the cories have learned to stay out of the log but otherwise, he is not an issue with them. They are in a 4 foot long tank 60 gallon.

I think I am going to have to try something different. I think the rainbows are going to be to shy/aggressive for what I want. Thanks for the input guys
