im deff. gonna get another rts, but there will never be another jaws ya kno, im gonna get a bigger one this time, jaws was about 2 and a half inches, maybe ill get a 5 inch or close to it, im gonna go and look later today after i make sure my water is right, i dunno what was wrong with jaws, he like couldnt move the back half of his body, he just kinda went where the water current took him(which made me realize how much water current i really have...........ALOT) any other sharks you know i could buy instead of a rts?

Have you gotten that new tank yet? If not, you need to wait...that 10 gallon was very overstocked as it was. I'm really quite curious about your parameters.

+1.

Sorry for your loss.

RTBS are very peaceful when small (under 3/4"). When they get large and mature, they get very aggresive and will kill the fish in a tank of that size. Mine is reaching 4", and isn't putting up with some of the usual nonsense my male Krib has been throwing at him.

Useful information, Cody. Before I had my pair of Kribs, I had a rainbow shark that sought the waters beyond my aquarium during a water change. Unfortunately for him, there was only very dry carpet, and he didn't make it. I was thinking about getting another rainbow or RTBS to go in whatever tank I'll be getting when I move back home, but I'd be moving my Krib pair in there and I don't want to put in a fish that will refuse to get out of the Kribs' way when they're spawning.
