The spotted fish is a Cory of some sort. Not sure what kind. From the head the shark looks like a red tail shark. Does it have red fins and tail or just a red tail?

It has red fins and tail, and the body is kind of between a grey and olive green.

Ok sounds like a rainbow shark. Not as nasty as a red tail shark but still territorial and needs to be kept with none of it's own kind and in a 55g minimum.

I'm glad I asked here. The 2 seem to get along fine with each other and everyone else, I had no idea they would change later. The redeyes and neons seem happier today, they are eating and swimming around more. The balloon red eyes swim differently, they hang around and sort of wiggle in place, like they are having a seizure.

Lol. Ballon fish often have trouble swimming because of there body shape. Unfortunately they are bred to basically be deformed to look that way.

Lol. When they want to, they swim fast. My bengal cat jumped at the tank and they scattered and swam away really fast.

Lol. Seeing a cat will do that that to a fish.

Yes +1 to all advice given here. And good for you, taking action and rehoming the fish, and bumping up the schools.

I looked at the photos, and oh my god!! Your angel looks almost EXACTLY like mine. I dont have a great picture of mine, but i swear they are brother/sister lol
From the other side, mine also has the black splotch near the back fin!

Well I rehomed the sharks, but one of my neons was floating upside down near the surface this morning. I now have 8 neons and 8 balloon red eyes. One of the red eyes stays off by himself while the other 7 congregate together most of the time.

I had buildup of white slimy coating on the inside of the glass and along the airline. Is it ok to just wipe it off and let it float around the tank until the filter gets it?

Cheers

Good on you! That's great news
Your right just to wipe it off if it's bothering you.
