I have talked with Nick in the past not to add any more balas considering the waste of space as they'll eventually outgrow the tank. Nick has been persuaded already to stay away from balas but it's his decision and we respect it. We should be aware of the welfare of the fish. As long as Nick's bala is fine, I don't see anything wrong to not adding more.
Personally, I don't recommend the idea of throwing the fish out once they outgrow the tank. The fish is now under your care and you must take responsibility to that.

i agree with blue, especially since i see the point of keeping fish as having pets...and i wouldnt take my puppy back to the store when she got too big and wasnt a puppy anymore, i would already be attached to her....you see? i think its the same with fish, for most anyways...i love my fishies, i dont want to give them back...but he could upgrade! 8) hahahah

Thanks for all of the reply's and all of the 'hard' work to try to help me. Once I see a sign of my angels trying to 'eat' ( even though they are small ) than I will rehome them immediatly. And on the bala. I've had my bala ever since I got my 10 gallon and than I found out that it needed a big tank so I got a 55 gallon. And I'm not getting anymore because that would make them happy for now but not later because I know they will outgrow the tank later on. He is healthy as can be and pretty much hangs out with everyone all the time. Thank all for everyone's input. Very much appreciated 8)

55 Gallon:1 Baby Bristlienose,1 Swordtail, 1 Bala Shark, 2 Common Pleco, 2 Clown Loaches, 2 angel fish,3 (look a like) rasbora Tetra's, 4 Black Skirt Tetra's, 4 Long-finned Gold Zebra Danios, 4 Cardinal Jumbo Tetra's,6 Red Eye Tetra's, 7 neon tetra's
10 Gallon Nano Reef:1 Chocolate Starfish, many snails...Work is in progress...err

I also have a question on my java ferns. How long do you think it will take for them to start growing bigger? Had them about 2 weeks and only seen a little growth on the roots. I'm waiting for them to start wrapping around the wood & rocks...and start to get bigger leaves. Is there anything I can do?

All help is appreciated..

Nick

You just have to wait.
It takes months, not days for the plants to establish their roots.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Hey everyone, here's a video of my Clown loaches. I'm doing this through photobucket so I know you can go through my 'album' and look at my other pictures but I please ask you to not do it. I dont know any other way to show the video. Oh and its crappy quality. Tell me what you think of them @ the video...enjoy!!!! :D:D
