Rainbow sharks need lots of swimming room. Think 55 gal or larger. They are relatively slow growing but would eventually need larger tank.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

There is a minimum requirement of 30 gallons for an aquarium featuring the Rainbow Shark, although 55 gallons or more would be much better. This is a very active species that has the potential to be very aggressive if adequate hiding places are not provided
