Loaches, Tetras, Mollies, seem to do fine with rainbow sharks. My rainbow shark is about 6 inch long.

Tiger barbs, Serpae tetras, various catfish.....

Please excuse my spelling and lack of paragraphs - its my phone's fault! 80gal low light planted tiger barb/columbian tetra/BN plec tank 29gal just changing to heavily planted low tech, lots of bogwood causing "natural" terraces, pebbles, sand, pair of GBRs, ember tetras and otocinclus. Eek! Can't wait til its finished!

I have had zero issues wiith them getting along with Leopard Bush Fish, Otto's, Cardinal Tetras, Boesemani Rainbows, Roseline Sharks, Plecos, Clown Loaches, Ember Tetras, African Dwarf Frogs, and ropefish.

I have read that they will not tolerate any other rainbow, red-tail or black shark though.

They will also get territorial as they mature and will claim an area, usually like a cave or other hiding place. I have seen him claim stuff in my tank, although it is planted along with a lot of driftwood, so everyone seems to have their own place. No issues so far.
