    this fish


    is starving... they are fighting for food imo... look at it, it is not healthy looking at all

    bring some frozen spinach from the market with you and throw it in the tanks... i guarantee they go nuts... they're probably only being fed cucumbers and they will starve to death just about that way
    Except for the tail marking this looks to be a match for a fish I am trying to identify!

    I've read through all thirteen pages of this thread... Had one question still regarding Red Tail Sharks and the SAE though. I know some people have said that so long as you have a large enough tank and it's well-planted, they'll get along though they normally fight. Would a well planted tank anywhere from 120-180 gallons be large enough for them to not pester each other? Does the length of the tank matter more than the width in this case?

    Overall foot print (LxW) is the biggest factor. It really depends on how planted it is as RTS tend to establish a territory and will chase any fish away from what is "theirs". If you allow for lots of hiding places, etc. it might be doable. That being said, if you somehow end up with an overly aggressive shark, I would expect the SAEs to be one of the first targets as they inhabit the bottom portions more often and they have a similar body shape. Just keep an eye out if you end up doing the combo and make sure you have arrangements if things do not work out.
