New Fish: Red-Tail Black Shark

So I got a new red-tail black shark to add more variety into my 75 gallon. He looks all fine and dandy and is quite active.

Here's the video (Don't forget, best seen in HD):

I don't have any fish that have large free flowing fins, luckily.

Def seems heathly and livly :] I had rainbow sharks, but never a red-tail. My rainbow shark was extremely docile and kept to himself, but my Albino shark...he hated anything and everything. Good Luck though Hopfully he settles in after awhile and establishes a turf and then just occupys that area.

I've read that both rainbow and red tail are pretty aggressive towards their own kind. Are rainbows less aggressive? Or does it depend on the individual fish's unique temperament?

hmm I have heard that redtails are aggressive and rainbow sharks are more docile. I would ask around more though.

I got rid of my rainbow shark( lighter version of the red tail) because he was tearing up mu kuhli loach, and they barely have any fins to begin with, his injuries were on his body however.

They are mean mean fish, any and all territories are their own in their mind.
