I don't know much about convicts but the red tail shark is going to out grow that tank. They need minimum 55g tank sorry. The tiger barb also needs a school. So before you add anymore fish you should look into correcting the stocking issues you have.

Convicts and RTS are way too big for a 36 gallon. Tiger barbs do best in larger tanks as well, in large schools. I think you seriously need to re-evaluate your stocking all together before thinking about adding anything else.

You have to be lucky if you put a jd in your tank that the convic or jd can go together it's hard to say it's a gamble. Check me out on you tube brandyn9111

IMO, no. Those convicts are going to grow same as the shark.

A 36 is still to small for them. It's not necessarily the size of the fish but the aggression and swimming space needed. That being said you've been given advise on those fish. Up to you if you follow it.
