umm...you do realize that bala sharks get to be enormous? We're talking over 2 feet long! I say get rid of the bala sharks and add some clean up crew i.e. ottocinclus and SAEs. Then get a school of some sort of tetra.

I dont believe balas get over 2 feet long, they get around like 11 or 12" I think, but not 2ft. It all depends on if you want a few large fish, or alot of little fish or a little of both. I still think nice angels with rasboras or cardnials are very pretty
