Rainbow=agressive

Weather loaches=hard to keep alive

Kribensis pair=very territorial and agressive while breeding

They are usually peaceful when they are not breeding so i think one would be better. The rainbow shark would still be agressive though. Ditch it and get an angel fish and your good

The rainbow I have is a albino, I heard albinos have decreased aggression, is that true??? It doesnt seem too aggressive and I havent noticed any chasing or anything...

I do not know if it being albino changes much, but is it a juvie? If so then it reallydoesnt matter because it will be agressive when it grows up

Tiger barbs go good with kribs.

Any thing in the bottom of the tank have a huge risk of being picked on or killed.

Depends on the kribs. I have 3 khulies and my kribs pick on them they don't come out as much but I have alot of cover for them to hide.
