    I noticed that this question had been asked a while back in the Bala Shark section, but a clear answer was never left. I currently have one RTS and one Gold Gourami in a 75 g tank. I know the Balas get big, but my main concern is the interaction between them and my RTS. I'd really appreciate any thoughts and wisdom on the topic.

    welcome to fishlore !!
    ive had both together and they do fine...balas are more middle top dwellers......they are just gentle giants....wish I could have a large school of them :)

    kayleigh, a bala in your size tank, isnt going to work for long :( and if he can catch the fry, he will eat them

    I currently have my RTS, Bubbles, with 2 balas, Chip and Dale, who are about his size. They get along fine.
