    Do you think a 10 gallon tank would be enough for one red tail black shark? Maybe a ghost shrimp or two?

    Ideally I would like to put it in at least a 20, but until I can make that happen will a 10 be enough?

    Red tailed sharks need at least 55 gallons to be kept with other fish, and a 36 inch tank to be kept alone.

    No. They need a large tank even when they are young and especially when growing they can get aggressive and need space to swim. Awesome fish and they definitely have their personalities.

    My Red-tailed Black Shark swims in a 110 gallon and uses every inch of it as she is a large six inch active fish.
