    I have a single Albino Rainbow Shark in a 30 gallon tank with Platys, Guppies and a Pleco.

    Is this arrangement going to be ok?

    The person who sold me the Shark gave me bad advice on it in the first place (he sold me 3 despite being fully aware of my set up) and I don't really want to go back for anymore advice.

    Guidance from anyone with experience would be appreciated.

    The rainbow shark and pleco (what type of pleco) are going to have a large bio load.
    What are your current water parameters?

    A very slight hint of ammonia but no nitrite and nitrate at around 20ppm. Tested last night.

    The rainbow shark needs to be rehomed. A 30 gal tank isn't big enough for one.

    If it's a common pleco, it needs to be rehomed too. The tank isn't big enough for this species either.
