Would red tailed sharks be ok with b/n in a fifty-five gallon tank?

this is true as my dad has a large male BN and a red tail black shark...and as you said john the redtail has never stopped trying to get into the bn's cave..
the redtail seemd scared of the bn but it didnt stop it pestering it .....

I read that red tail's are best kept in groups of six or more, and less than that they start to pick on other fish in the tank. Not to mention there very territorial, and also like caves. I guess I answered my own question!

RTS are best kept as 1 and not more as they are very territorial and will fight and/ or kill any of their own kind.

High guys, I have been told that RTS are the more peaceful version of (guppy)sharks ,versus silver
and blacks. A friend of mine has a black shark about 5inches which he has to keep by itself for sake
of destroying other fish, so if the sharks are generally territorial I'd watch all species with a fish that
stays smaller than the sharks.
Cheers J
