I would not say bala sharks are ok in a 150 gallon. They are schooling like you said and get to 14 inches each. Also they are very active very strong fish. They need LOTS of swimming room and a tank with strong glass.

I saw you said dwarf gouramis need 20 gallons. So how many could I put in a 36 and still have room for a small school of tetras?

But really, many people keep lots of fish improperly. More often than not, hobbyists report quick die offs from their oto's. The forums are just full of these kind of issues. I think improper stocking is one of the main reasons. I feel like, especially for newbies which are the ones that refer to this kind of list the most, it's better to err on the side of caution. JMO.
African ghost knives I assume your talking about, only get around 10-12inch max in home aquaria. I've had a black ghost knife for 5 years he stopped growing right under a foot.

Probably because they have like 15 in a tank to reduce agression.
