On the initial issue, with Bala Shark I would not have any cichlids. The profile of the Bala explains why--their very active swimming which will annoy most sedate fish. I would go with some substrate fish and leave the beautiful Bala to themselves.
Yeah, I added some Congo Tetras, which seem as active as the Balas, but other than that I think I am going to complete the tank with a school of 5 clown loaches.
