red tail sharks
So I have heard to not put 2 red tail sharks into the same tank together is it really that much of a problem because my poor shark looks pretty lonley and he is in a 55 gal tank?
In my opinion, It's not a good idea. One shark would rule the 55 gal and the other would be miserable.

I second what 1077 said, 2 redtails are more than likely gonna be an agression issue with one of them losing the battle

They're not lonely. They're loners by nature.

I agree. he should be just fine! I <3 rts. MAKE SURE U KEEP A REALLY TIGHT LID ON! Babies can jump about a foot in the air, so I don't want to think about what a full grown RTS would do!
+1. My old RTBS could jump out of nets...

I wouldnt try it, not worth the risk!
They are territorial, my one (memphis) fights with his reflection!!haha

ya if you decide to put other fish in the tank with the red tail make sure you have a little cave or something so the red tail can claim it as its own.

I have managed 2 in a four foot tank a few years ago . There were plenty of hiding places and plants , though. I also had a red fin shark in there as well.
As above - one will be dominant.

Another option I tried and had success with was to add a Clown Loach or two or more.
A while ago I had A large Red tail black shark and it's buddy a clown loach - they were inseparable !!
