Bala Shark

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?

Thank you,

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.
