TSN's are not suitable for home aquaria full stop.

Unless of course you have room for one that is say 200x80x80..... thats inches btw, so thats about 16x6x6 feet long approximately....

You aint got room for it unless you own a public aquarium

the 55 gallon isnt big enough for the bala sharks, they will be a bit cramped in there, a 180 gallon is perfect size for 4 of them, they will grow to full size.

Nah. At least, he can enjoy the balas in his 180 gallons.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

i read your siggy and it says your cycling the 180 with bala sharks, and you think adding more fish will make it faster?!?!?!?!?! Stop what your doing, bala sharks arent strong enough to cycle, and adding more fish wont make the cycling faster, it will probably just kill them all in there, do a fishless cycle or use some hardy fish
