No bala sharks would ever be put in the 100 gallons tank. Being shoalers and reaching 12 inches or more in size, you'll need 150-200 gallons alone for 6 balas. They are skittish and should never be kept in less than six.
yeah i was thinking about some small cichlids and angelfish they look pretty good. but are bala sharks or colubian sharks a little more dosile then the red tailed shark?
As for the columbian sharks, they still get pretty big and need salt to thrive well. Don't mix them with other fish as the fish you listed will not tolerate salt long-term except mollies. Still, mollies will be preyed on by these sharks leaving you to deal with only the columbian sharks in your tank.
ok then. angel fish and maybe drawf cichlids it is. and give my koi away to my friend eric with a 140 some odd gallon tank when he gets too big. i think its settled. but what about barbs? are they a good community fish?
