You need to consider varying the foods instead of just one. Veggies, frozen, freeze-dried and live foods should be fine.

It isn't big enough but I would advise against using feeder fish to a bala shark. Bala sharks are not predators and most feeder fish harbor diseases that can eventually kill your fish.
