If as you say it's the red tailed shark I would really suggest the 48 inch tank is the better option as this shark can be quite nippy and territorial!
Red Tailed Shark.
I realize they get nippy and territorial, and that is why a 48" tank is recommended.
What I'm asking is, if he is the only fish in the tank, and all the territory is his, and there is noone to get nippy with, then is 36" adequate?
Badman's says 36" is the minimum tank size, and I read on another site they need a yard (36") of their own territory.
When I read conflicting profiles I typically ask around for advice from people who have kept that species in similar circumstances.
