With its brilliant red tail and jet black body, a red tail shark makes an impressive center piece fish for larger aquariums. It is normally a very active fish, and is constantly on patrol in its aquarium. Other times it comically tries to hide by cramming itself into tiny spaces, oblivious to the fact that its bright red tail is sticking out.

I like huge fish to keep in a aquarium but even though this fish does not get that big it is still my favorite fish. They are aggressive enough so that my big fish don't bother him but peaceful enough for a community tank. They also have a very cool color with a bright red tail.Redtail Catfish, Featured item. #redtail #catfish #scavenger #fish #petfish #aquarium #aquariums #freshwater #freshwaterfish #fishofinstagram #featureditemRedtail Catfish, Featured item. #redtail #catfish #scavenger #fish #petfish #aquarium #aquariums #freshwater #freshwaterfish #fishofinstagram #featureditemThe Redtail Catfish (Phractocephalus hemioliopterus) can get up to around 50 inches (130 cm) or larger in size when fully grown! The more commonly seen sizes are around half that - 25 inches (65 cm) or so. They are considered fast growers and will outgrow 99 percent of home aquariums so it's best to not buy this catfish unless you have a large backyard pond to put them in. The redtail catfish can live for many, many years so putting one in a small tank that they can quickly outgrow is not a good idea at all.Redtail Catfish, Featured item. #redtail #catfish #scavenger #fish #petfish #aquarium #aquariums #freshwater #freshwaterfish #fishofinstagram #featureditemRedtail catfish can easily reach lengths greater than 48 inches (122 centimeters) in the home aquarium, and they grow even larger in nature. The largest recorded caught redtail catfish was 123 lb 7 oz. (56 kg), and 63 inches (160 centimeters) in length. They can live up to 20 years in captivity, though their lifespan is usually far shorter, since they are rarely given the conditions required to keep them healthy.The redtail catfish (Phractocephalus hemioliopterus), known as the cajaro in Venezuela, and the pirarara in Brazil, is an extremely large freshwater fish.
