No, figure8 puffers are fin nipper and mean! They need their own tank. Don't let their cuteness fool you! Plus fiqure 8 puffers need brackish water...around 1.5

that is way too small for the sharks,assuming they are bala sharks,they can get to 12" long and are schooling species.

Don't believe everything a LFS tells you....you need to do some research before you buy fish, then you will get an idea what size tank the fish will be happy in nothing worst than stressed out or sick fish. Or better yet ask here at AA!
