Active fish does well in most tanks, but catches diseases pretty easy. good eater, likes everything. many fishes only bite it once and only once, but the good thing is that they don't bite back.
Very attractive looking fish. I have 2 Silver-tipped Shark, 2 bala shark 1 iridescent and a pleco in a 10 gallon tank. I am moving them in a 45 gallons. I am plannig to buy a Pictus catfish and a Silver Dollar. The Black Fin is a little aggresive though. My two silver tips are always available to watch, as they never hide.
Very attractive looking fish, although I lost one to ICK, The other survived when I treated him in a smaller 10 gallon tank with ICK Clear. I bought another to keep him company, but lately they have been chasing each other around and obviously nipping at each others fins. I guess they are somewhat territorial with their own species. They get along great with my other fish. I have a Bala Shark, Pictus catfish, black fin shark, rainbow shark, Common Pleco, and a Siameese Tiger Fish. The Black Fin is a little aggresive though. My two silver tips are always available to watch, as they never hide.
