    Either get rid one of the fish or upgrade your tank. What size of your current tank?

    Red Tail Sharks will be aggressive to anything shark-like that resembles their body shape. 50 Gal is ok for a Red tail but given that Bala Sharks grow to over a foot long I'd be inclined to re-home them rather than the Red Tail since you will eventually need a bigger tank for them anyway.

    Beautiful Red Tail btw. I'd love to have one but they can be real jerks.
