The silver tipped shark is a brackish water fish, also grows very large and is a predator. It needs a 125g tank. Your really going to need to get rid of this fish also.
Your pleco does not like salt, so it and the silver tip cannot live together.
The bala shark will also not work they need 125g tank.
The african leaf fish I'm not sure on but I am pretty sure they have different water perimeters than angel fish..
How long have you had your tank? If I were you I would get rid of the midas and shark. Do you have a common pleco? If so it will also probably need to go as it's going to out grow your tank also. What are the dimensions of your tank? and ph? I'm sure we can help you come up with a good stock list.
Wow, alrighty then. I've been completely steered in the wrong direction I guess. Lets see, I've gotten all my fish at the petsmart that I work at, and all the information say that a 40g minimum for and oscar and 29 minimum for a midas. This tank has been up and running for a little over a year now. My ph is at a 7.2 and I haven't had any fish loss, due to water quality.
I had no Idea that the silver tip shark was brakish water, he's been doing fine ever since I added him into the tank. But I guess it would be a good Idea to try and start over "completely". My plecostamos is normal, and about 8" He's the oldest fish I have.
I used to have a tank of just angelfish, and I wanted to get another one or three, cause I hear you shouldn't have just two.
I also have a parrot cichlid in a different tank I was thinking about moving over soon-ish.
Oh and thanks, I'm really excited to be here :)
