The Redtail Shark, also known as the Redtail Black Shark is great for the semi-aggressive community aquarium, as long as they are the sole sharks and the other tankmates are of similar size. The Redtail Shark is a beautiful fish with a jet black body and a bright red tail. The dorsal fin is marked with a white tip.
It requires a large aquarium with driftwood, rocks, and spots of dense vegetation. This shark may set up territories around the aquarium. The Redtail Shark will become very aggressive towards its own species when mature.

Unfortunately, the breeding habits of the Redtail Shark have not been documented.

An omnivore, the Redtail Shark is not a particularly finicky eater. Flake food, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, as well as vegetable-based foods should be fed.
........................... Cool

I keep one of these with my BN's, and she doesn't bother them at all. She spends a lot hanging around the ferns and keeping the plastic plants clean, and happily shares Lars favorite spot (under the resin tree root) with her Smile
They grow to about 15cm long, not 8.Though I wish they stayed at 8, thats about how big mine is, I reckon it's the perfect size for them lol!
Lovely fish to watch, very active, always nibbling on plants to clean them! However, not sure whether they'd interrupt breeding much or not, but I can imagine if the cave is smaller than the Red Tail, they might try poke their head in every now and again xD

You prolly won't get any dramas out of the shark cos they in with other nocturnal creatures, Its the sleeping fish at night that get munched on by these buggas..they predate on small sleeping ones...like tetras or rams..
The sharks might get a bit territorial towards each other as they get larger too.
