They are relatively peaceful but skittish fish when not housed properly. Reaching the 12"+ mark they require a six foot to provide them with enough swimming room, also they are less skittish when kept in groups of five or more making them unsuitable in anything smaller than a 150g tank.

My Bala sharks are peaceful. They just kinda float around and watch everyone else in the tank do their thing
