red tailed shark
 
Hello I have a 50 gallon tank right now with 6 tiger barbs in it. Im going to get a few more tiger barbs and about 6-8 corydoras. I was wondering if its ok to add a single red tailed shark into this fish community?

They can get large (9") so I would vote: no. You are right, however, about only getting one as they are agressive towards their own species.

I find confilcting information, too, I see from 6"-9". I assume it is Epalzeorhynchus bicolor.

It is, Josh.;) 4 inches is an understatement. 5-6 inches is common.
