Hi,I was thinking about getting a rainbow shark next week.
I have a question:ARE they peaceful?
I am buying a juvenile and he will be put in my 55 gal tank with barbs,tetras,danios,loaches etc.
If you have experience please share it with me!
Plus I've got plenty of hiding spaces for him! Very Happy

They are not exactly peaceful, but might work in a setup like that. I'm unsure about the loaches, though... what kind do you have and how many?

I have 2 yoyo loaches and 2 zebra loaches,all are pretty big.
They are also kind of nippy and boisterous
