I was just wondering I feed my Bala sharks New Life Spectrum Large fish formula, does this meet there dietary needs?

Thank you.

You need to consider varying the foods instead of just one. Veggies, frozen, freeze-dried and live foods should be fine.

It isn't big enough but I would advise against using feeder fish to a bala shark. Bala sharks are not predators and most feeder fish harbor diseases that can eventually kill your fish.
