Rainbow shark

Would I small juvenile rainbow shark do well in a 30 gallon tank until I upgrade to a 55 towards the end of the year, I have read up on red tail sharks but I get the impression they are more aggressive so I think the rainbow would be a better option, thanks.

What else is in the tank, or would the shark be by itself?

That should be fine. It could live out the rest of its life comfortably in a 40 breeder, but the 55 is ideal. In my experience rainbow sharks are less aggressive than redtails, but can still have an attitude. Your BA tetras are hardy fellows though so they should get along with him just fine.

Ok thanks, would that be fully stocked or would there be room for anything else?
