We are looking into getting a bigger tank and figuring out the water situation. It is a process. Sorry for the confusion earlier on, I've had fish for about four years (some purchased some acquired), and it is still a learning process. I will take into consideration your advice and try to find a better solution for the bala sharks. I certainly do not want any animal to suffer. I guess the main problem is that I was getting conflicting advice.

Furthermore my grammar should not be your problem as long as you seem to have problems understanding basic english. Like: fish to big, tank to small, fish live bad, fish die! Maybe that is more to your college understanding.
Also i see you brag about going to college yet you make threats just like a 12 years old would and yet you dare talk about me having a small mind?
And what the heck does your wife and home have to do with you keeping those fish in a tank that's 10 times to small for them?
I'd say this to your face anytime but the distance from me to you is to big to be worth the trip.
Do not make threats unless you are ready to do something about it, otherwise you just look like a dumb kid.
Man was i wrong when i thought that higher learning can actually also help develop the brain...
Anyway, i'm not going to bother with your childish comments, it is clear to me that you are exactly the kind of person that has a small brain, next to nothing physical strenght and a huge HUGE desire to make yourself way more important/imposing that you really are.
Don't bother to reply, my time is to important to spend more of it on your insignificant life.
As for the rest of the people who posted in this topic... you can see all it took was a small push to show you what kind of ignorant person you are bothering to help.
The fact that this thread exists means that the universe failed somehow.


Super, have a great day! You may think I'm an idiot but I guess that would make me a college educated, married, happy, rich idiot! Works for me. =)

Come on guys calm down after all we are all here trying to figure out the best way to take care of our fish and tanks. Sometimes when we type on the net we can not get the full meaning of what someone is trying to get across so to it being written and not spoken. I am glad you are going to be getting a bigger tank and trying to do right by your bala sharks. And I wish you luck trying to get your water situation fixed I imagine haveing to buy bottle water is expensive.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Well if you are rich, then perhaps you could look into Reverse osmosis water. Its a very pure filtration system so the water into your tank may be "too clean" but you can add in the minerals and nutrients you need. Its more complicated but if you work through it, it will provide very good water for your fish. In the long run, it would probably save you money, its just expensive to buy all at once.

As for a larger tank, for the species you have that get large like the bala shark, Irredescent Shark, and pleco will all get to over a foot long, and require a long tank. The depth is not as important although it should be deep enough for the the fish obviously, but the tank must be long and deep enough for the fish to turn around comfortably in.

Its understandable to be confused, Ive had fish for over 10 years and I still have to stop and sit down and do a bunch of research before i understand what i need for new additions to my tank. Even after 10 years I still get tons of algae problems :-/. Ive found the best place to learn is to google, looking for fish profiles, usually there are facts that all of them agree on, and then here asking for people for personal experiences. The profiles available here are also very good. They are well researched, mostly written by Byron. Its a very frustrating hobby, but stick at it and it will reward you well.

Good luck with your fish!
