Question, I’m looking at getting a shark (either a rainbow or red-tipped) in the near future to add to my 55 gal. It’s going to be a Cichlid tank and I would like to add a shark to give a little “pazazz”. I don’t know which one to get. From what I’ve read, it seems like either one should be okay in a cichlid tank.
I know the red-tipped is more of a scavenger, likes to really jump, and has more vibrant colors.
I know the rainbow might be a little better for compatibility but, at the same time it’s not as pretty.
Any suggestions? What have you all done in the past? Is it even feasible to put a shark in with cichlids? Do you recommend one over the other?
My tank (once its set-up) will have yellow labs, red zebras, and probably acies. Any help/thoughts/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Rainbow vs. Red-tipped shark?
