Ah, I read that even though they share the same body, red tails have been found to get along with some loaches and play/school with them from time to time

One has to distinguish between the norm and the minority. Sometimes an individual fish can behave outside the norm for the species; we don't know why, scientifically--except in cases where the environment (tank space, water parameters, aquascape, tankmates) is different from what the fish requires naturally and erratic behaviours result. But the wise aquarist always assumes the "norm" for a species. Those of us who have not done this in the past usually live to regret it. Dealing with a fish that one has had for several months and that overnight becomes a terror is not always easy. Don't risk your other fish. I stand by the advice in the profile.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
