That bala shark is a schooling fish and gets enormous. I think you need like a 125 for a school of balas

If you take the bala shark out I think you could add nano fish.

You could, but balas are omnivorous so as it gets bigger it might eat the smaller fish.

You really should stock your tank according to adult size not plans on future upgrades. No body knows when it begins to occur but it is fact that a fish kept in to small of a tank will be stunted resulting in a shorter lifespan and more chance for parasites and disease while it is alive. Along with that balas do get very big I believe around 14" or so and need schools to be happy. If you want a shark but not such a large tank rainbows can be kept in 50s but that's about as small as you'll be able to go with freshwater sharks. Sorry.
