I have a 72 gallon fish tank. I want to get a bala shark. Will a bala shark be suitable for a 72 gallon tank when he's full grown? I read the min is 55 gallon is ok for a bala. I also have some tetras in my tank as well and if I get a bala shark, I want to divide them but I looked for a divider but can't find one for a 72 gallon tank. I want to keep them separated until the bala gets alittle bigger. Any suggestion?
I cannot recommend a Bala Shark for your tank. This is a large fish, attaining 14-16 inches, and being a shoaling fish it needs a group of at least five, and that means a very large aquarium, 8-feet. It is also predatory. And a plant eater. You can read more in our profile, click on the shaded name.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
