    Would 2 angelfish and 3 bala sharks be okay together in a 150 gallon?

    Personally I would get quite a few more angels. But 2 angels and 3 bala sharks will be fine in your tank,

    I think you could have 8 to 10 even with the balas. I wouldn't have more than that. The bio load won't be an issue with that many and the balas. But you would be running out of territory for them. And with 8 to 10 you will surely have some pair up and breed. But with the other fish, I don't think any of the eggs will last long enough to have any fry. The parents can get mean when they are spawning. So you need to make sure they have some space, and the others have room to not bug them. If you do do this, and you do get some eggs, I doubt they make it though the night.
