Hello!
You will need a minimum of five Bala Sharks together as they are schooling fish. They get very large, a 150 gallon is the minimum with at least a 200 being the next.

Do you know if just flakes and blood worms and brine shrimp are the best for them? or is there something else better?
You can feed them carnivorous foods, such as frozen or freeze dried. They also may appreciate vegetable based diets too, as they are omnivores.

Sorry. It looked like detritus worms. I had 4 bala' s but lost one the other day to septicemea. I don't know why, there is no reason for stress. No bullies in the tank.
The tank is 90 gallons with a 30 gallon sump. However the ph was a little high at 8 but that's it. There are no other fish sick. I quarantined him and used media from his tank to set up another and matched the ph also.
