I have had different experience with Bala sharks. I have had two for some time now over a year they were kept in a tropical community 55gallon with many other tropicals such as.. Angels, clown loach, neontetras, gouramis and rainbow fish I never had a problem with them eating my other fish nor chasing them. I no longer have my community tank *wanted larger fish* the balas are the only ones I kept and they are now homed with a Ornate Bichir and get along fine. They are slow growers as well my largest is only 5inches and have had him a little over a year.. I do have a friend who has two huge balas around 12inches or more and they are living peacefuly with a large angel. She has had them for years together.
Personaly I don't see the problem with having a pair of balas get them small and see how they get along with your other species in the tank.
I have never had a problem with them getting along with any of my fish.
