    Hi, I'm new here and have a question. I have bala sharks in with some of my South American cichlids and I have noticed that a couple of the balas have been rubbing on each other. I'm thinking they are trying to breed but I have never dealt with this. I left the balas in that tank and moved the cichlids to another. Am I doing the right thing here? And how long until I know if she's going to have babies?

    my bala Sharks are rubbing up on each other like they're trying mate but I have read that it's impossible to breed bala Sharks in an aquarium. Help.

    There egg scatters. If you have marbles or large round river rocks as a substrate you may get some fry. Usually takes a week or so. The eggs hatch in about 36 hours. Its been a while since I reed up on this, so I may be off on the specifics.

    Sorry about the delayed response but I think I have ran into bigger problems. I will be posting a new thread though.
