You said you had a BT Shark..... as in Bala shark, or did you mean Red-Tailed Black Shark?? I currently have a RTBS, & it is one of the more aggressive fish I own; I had to put him in w/ a smale male jag to put him in his place, after he was in tanks containing a pair of Festae & a small female Jag & did nothing but start trouble.....
I am talking about Red Tailed Black Shark. I have them for years in every of mine large community tank 90 plus gal, as well Rainbow sharks I mention before. They don't cause any problems, they may chase each other from time to time but nothing downsize homicidal. I am sure if you kept them in smaller tank it may turn completely different. Size is a matter for these.
The reason I like them because, they are great scavengers (getting in places where Python wc accessories can't) besides being beautiful fish, unless you planning CA tank and want only fish from the specif area. But I am not that anal.
The red tail pictured here is 7 years old and full 6" TL and he is not going anywhere from that 6 ft tank
