    I have a 75 gallon tank with my rainbow shark and 10 red eye tetras. Any suggestions on new additional fish?

    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 heard that rainbow sharks get along with most loaches,more likely ones from his original habitat
    But beware that some sharks might be too aggressive
    I'd go with yoyo loaches but the choice is yours c:

    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
