i made my aquarium around my shark.

Any bottom feeders or any other sharks will not go well with him. Make sure your tank is established and any other territorial fish have found their place, or he will claim your whole tank. Since mine is still young and small im not sure on this, but everything ive read says once they get to size they will bully anything not around the same size as them.

Mine stays in a tree stump, comes out to feed and goes back in hiding.He looks cool and predatorial, but i wanr other bottom fish also.Tough choice, he keeps my bottom spotless ,but will he pick at the HS loach and shrimp ?

the loaches might be ok, but the invertebrates will probably die.

What size is this tank? 5 is the recommended minimum. Maximum depends on you. They're fast growers at 6 inches max in length.

Most of my yoyos ae females. A lot of stocks I have seen are composed of more females than males.
