More info

A popular but hit or miss fish in the community aquarium, rainbow sharks are so called for their beautiful black bodies and red finnage.

Similar to the red-tailed black shark, they can be aggressive and need carefully chosen tankmates that can avoid or stand up to rainbow sharks. Individual personality can also play part in success with these fish.

They mostly tend to scavenge in the lower areas of aquaria, therefore tankmates in the upper region of the tank tend to stand better chances at not being harassed.

Rainbow sharks will also fight and bully their own, so one per tank is often recommended unless the aquarium is very large to allow for territories.

An omnivore, they appreciate a varied diet of commercial and frozen/live foods. They are easy to keep healthy provided regular water changes are part of their maintenance routine.
