Tetras with sharks

I have 2 bala sharks, 1 black shark, and a little pleco in my semi-aggressive 29 gallon tank. If I get a school of cardnal tetras, would I have any problems? All the sharks currently chase each other around, especially around feeding time, but normally don't give each other many problems. If cardnal tetras wont work, what other small, schooling fish would be possible?

I think you might have some problems, how would rasboras do? They are a little bigger.

Rasboras are real cool, i like them. I am afraid tetras will get eaten.

A good fish would also be tiger barbs, as long as you keep them in at least a group of 6.

I have two large (5-6") Bala Sharks, and I have a school of 7 White Clouds in my tank, and they get along really well. I thought for sure they would get eaten but they didn't. I don't know if these would work or not, just a suggestion.

I bet you could try some fish, just buy 3 or 4, if they live, buy more.
