    i have a 29 gallon tank with a few platys and some corys. My other tank broke and had to move my 2 small balls sharks in with the platys. Will they be ok for a bit?

    Bala sharks need large tanks and a group. They are schooling fish that can get 8-12 inches. I would not advise getting any of them unless you are looking at getting at least a 125 gallon in the next month or two.

    Edit: bala shark's mouth aren't large enough at a small size to eat adult platies.
