I would definitely go with some cory's. I have 4 peppered cory's and 2 amano shrimp as bottom feeders in my 30 gal tank and they get on fine with my 6 tiger barbs! The cory's are very active even swimming about with my tigers sometimes and with some help from the shrimp keep the bottom of my tank spotless

Ideas?
Yes, you could... But keep in kind it'd have to be the only fish in the tank.

Have you checked out the Pictus Cats? They aren't really aggressive but they are seriously hyper and crazy to watch.

Thanks for all the advice. I'll post some pics of my 35 gallon tank soon. I am temporarily housing a Rainbow shark that on of my co-workers had in his 20 gallon. He has made himself a nice home at the bottom of my tank. It's well planted and set up so that there are lots of caves. Once he reaches 4 or 5 inches I'm going to take him to my LFS.

Red Tail Sharks are my favorite fish, but it's true they are very aggressive and territorial. Mine was crazy and would attack my Convict cichlids constantly. My first experience with one was when I bought a very small one for a 20gal. In that tank he had to deal with 4 Tiger Barbs. One day I thought for sure he was going to die so I took him out and put him in a large bowl. About an hour later he jumped out of the bowl and hit the kitchen floor, so I put him back in the 20 to take his chances. The next day all the tiger barbs were dead. I learned my lesson, and felt very guilty. I bought an 84 gal and got him in there as soon as I could and he lived and grew to be a spectacular fellow.
