Would you be able to advise as to what would be good fish to go along with bala silver sharks?
How large is your tank ? Balas are nervous fish and need to be in a group of at least 5.
They need a tank of AT LEAST 125g.
They grow quickly and get up to 14".
They tend to die easily in small tanks. They startle and hit the walls or jump out.
They are NOT a shark, they are actually a Minnow. They get fat looking once they grow up.
So if you have a 150g or larger tank, then you can ask about tank mates.
