Well Bala Sharks are for you. These little guys (:P Not little at all) are awsome fish to have, These guys grow to be 12-14 inchs and will not harm a small fish in your aquarium (Recommended you get them when there small for this information). To tell you the truth they are timmid and can be a reward to keep. They dont ask for much, But they give alot in return. Beauty, hardyness and good friends to add to your aquarium. These guys get spooked if you come up fast to the aquarium and may jump out of the water so make sure you have a good cover, even if you are slow to come up to the tank.
This is a true story from my friend.
One morning my friend woke up and saw his bala shark in the cornor of his tank and he was wondering, Whats going on? well then he saw a small neon tetra following him and as that tetra followed him the bala shark would flee to the other cornor trying to get away from the scary 1/2 inch neon tetra. This bala shark is 9 inch and the neon is 1/2? i mean why doesnt the bala eat the neon? well bala's dont eat fish in the wild they eat veggies. but they will take flake foods etc.
