    I love microfish tanks in large aquariums but that rainbow shark negates that idea.

    Why not a few schools of tetra and rainbow fish.

    Are you looking for other larger fish, or more small schoolers?

    I like cichlids so why not do a schoal of rainbow cichlids or bandit cichlids? Perhaps a breeding pair of sajicas? Along with some bottom dwellers like aeneus corydoras or zebra loaches. If you don't want bottom dwelling schoolers then consider a small group of hoplo catfish or 1 or 2 lace synodontis

    I've always been told that rainbow sharks don't get along with bottom dwellers or cichlids, I've never kept sharks so I can't say from experience. Though I've heard this multiple times

    It all depends on the individual fish. I've seen plenty of tanks with sharks and cichlids together
