bala shark has the ability to get 14 inches from nose to tail thats longer then a 10 gallon tank they also enjoy alot of swimming room. to keep a school (6+) u would need a 6 ft tank as a minimal. keeping the bala shrks in a 10 gallon will stunt their growth and shorten their life span considerably.

I see a case of MTS complicated by BTS a-brewin'. No known cure.

MTS=multi tank syndrome
BTS=big(ger) tank syndrome

welcome aboard.
you could have a Betta fish,mystery snails,cherry shrimp.
most other fish require larger swimming room.

Plants and harlequin rasboras would be gorgeous.

interesting 10 gallon tank to me:

Heavily planted
3 DP's (Dwarf Puffer's)
4 Oto's

DP's may not be the best option though do to needing snails in their diet.

No swordtails or mollies. Remember it's only a 10g tank.

If the tank were mine I'd probably do what bob suggested and go for lots of plants and a school of harlequins. Either that or some pygmy cories.
