    So I’m thinking about how I want to stock my tank. I was thinking about Bala and Red tailed sharks, tiger barbs and clown loaches. Would all these work together?

    so i have balas that started in a 75 gallon and i have now moved them to a shiny new 200 gallon. Mine are currently 13" . Balas get big. Clown loaches also get big (8")

    Tiger barbs are aggressive, so if you wanted them in a species tank, a 30 gallon should be fine. But if you wanted to combine them with other fish, they would probably need to be in a bigger tank for the sake of the other fish.

    remember with tiger barbs you need a group of 6 or more

    Bala sharks grow to about a foot as do clown loaches. Rainbow sharks get 6 to 8 inches long and need at least a 55 in my opinion. 6 or 8 tiger barbs would be fine. You could maybe do a firemouth with them.
