    i dont have one, but my friend does, she says he stays at the bottom and when the food is at the bottom he eats it all. go figure. so thats my best guess what he is doing.

    I love red tail sharks, i had one, but he randomly disappeared in my tank, which was really odd since all of my fish were community fish. I really wish i had another one.

    Yeah, with all of the ones i've had most of them eat off the bottom of the tank

    My brother has red tail, but I don't really know much about them, I think my brother said they are quiet aggressive.
