Rainbow sharks need lots of swimming room. Think 55 gal or larger. They are relatively slow growing but would eventually need larger tank.

There is a minimum requirement of 30 gallons for an aquarium featuring the Rainbow Shark, although 55 gallons or more would be much better. This is a very active species that has the potential to be very aggressive if adequate hiding places are not provided
