I just try to get emphasis across when I see something "strange."

Good luck with the tank.

And so you know... RTBS grow extremely fast and are very territorial. I saw many nights where my RTBS chased platies all over, and remember this was a 30G. I'm afraid that in a 10G, you could end up with dead fish. Mine grew probably 4" in 6 months. He is now almost 6" long at my LFS in a 90 gallon tank with an Oscar, 2 18"+ plecos, and a Pacu, and I've seen him hold his own against those.

ok... I better hurry up with the 29 gallon then... I didn't know you could put them with oscars (I def. don't have any room, I just thought that was interesting) What would you reccomend for tankmates then? I think zebra danios would be good because they are very active and could get away if he chased them...I don't really think 6" is gonna be too small for a 29g.. Hes only gonna be in the 10 gallon for maybe a month...

With these guys, their size is not the issue. It is their activity level and aggressiveness that makes it risky. In a 29G, just make sure there is nothing else that resides on the bottom (that cannot hold its ground).

The Zebras should do great in a 29.

And I'm not very good with suggestions, saying all my attention (fish-wise) is into reefs. Someone else will have something.

I already said the same thing. The shark is an active fish. He may survive in a 10 gallon, doesnt mean he will flourish in such a small tank.

ya, in my 29g I'm gonna do zebra danios, Rts, and maybe like 4 ottos, altho im not sure If I would be overstocking I might end up with just the danios and shark... maybe like 1 male molly or somthing... idk, once I get it cycled with my fish in it I'll worry about that.

Sounds good, Veganchick. :) Just make sure that the fish you choose can live together. :)

note for stocking.

Shark does not like cherry barbs or gold barbs

Does fine with plec, tiger barbs, molly, peacock eel
