+1. There are no "sharks" which should go in anything less than a 55 gallon IMO
/E...especially not a 10 gallon.
Bala sharks get 12-14", are VERY skittish, need to be in schools, require tons of swimming space and the last I heard a minimum 6' tank is recommended for them. IMO
...Bala Sharks are one of the species like CAE
's which should not be commonly sold for home aquaria. They are not suitable for the vast majority of tanks that people who walk into Petsmart are able to provide.
