My young red tail shark has some suspicious marks on him and it looks like he was injured. I have had problems with my bumblebee catfish attacking tetras before. Do these fish usually get along?
It really depends on what type your catfish is, if it is Asian then the shark will probably be eaten. If South American I think they are fine.

The Asian ones (Pseudomystus) grow to about 6” max, so they’re physically incapable of eating a Red Tailed Shark.
The thing is they’re nocturnal, so could be damaging the shark in the dark when it’s helpless, especially if it’s hungry. How big is the tank?
