    We'll I've had my rainbow shark about 2 weeks now and it seems like he likes to school with my tiger barbs ... They don't mind home following them .. But is this normal or is the rainbow plotting something sinister ??what does thin mean ??

    Probably plotting something sinister.
    They are very territorial.
    Click the link in your post or mine for Rainbow Shark and read up on it.
    Research will be very helpful.

    Yea I know their territorial I figured he would have enough space in my tank (125g) ... It doesn't seem like anyone is singled out and his swimming patterns don't seem aggressive

    Hmm what other fish do you have in your tank!?
  5. joiakimfishValued MemberMember

    A few rad eye tetra and candy cane tetra

    Actually planing on increasing all their school sizes to 12 each and adding a pleco

    It would. Be albino cause I have black substrate and I like the contrast it would bring

    Just got back from petland by my house .. They have 3 bn 2 are albino ... I told the manager to hold one for me till next week and she agreed to do so :)

    But as far as the rainbow shark. I'll look out if the "schooling" turns into nipping or something more
