All of this sounds weird. I have a 120 gal community tank, and my rainbow shark is one of the most active fish in the whole tank. He rarely hides, and is always out and about. Once in a while, he'll chase the bala away from his food but thats about it. I have plenty of caves and plants for him to hide in, but for the most part just swims around playfully.

I wish mine did that. However, I must say, for whatever reason, after I added a bunch of plants real recently, I have been seeing him much more often. He is still not out like all the time or anything but definitely a lot more than before.

Maybe it has something to do with the plants then? I dont know just a guess. I added a few swords, and the Rainbow mainly swims in front of them. Like I said he rarely hides, I've seen him once, maybe twice in a cave in 6 months. He swims around, nibbles at the bottom and at the decor. When I drop food, he's the first to eat it. Sometimes chases the bala, or a zebra maybe, but that only lasts about 2 seconds. The algae eater usually keeps him in check.
