Appearances can be deceptive. Unless you are an ichthyologist, I would heed what those people advise. I don't make this up.
A Red Tailed Shark needs space to grow to its 5-6 inch length; without it can become stunted with internal organ development (or non-development) problems. Small spaces also make potentially large fish more likely to be aggressive, especially as they mature. A baby black bear may be cuddly and "relatively" harmless, but as it matures it will not be the same. No different with fish.
There was a thread not long ago, someone had a RTS and after a while it suddenly became a terror and killed off a couple other fish.
Please read the profile and understand about what your fish require, and be prepared to provide it or reconsider the fish. That is only humane to the respective fish.
