Quick Fish Compatability Question
I have a 29 gallon tank, and it has cycled for 4 weeks using six zebra danios. I was looking around at pet stores and trying to determine what kind of fish i want, and i came up with this list.

  • 5 ghost catfish
  • 2 black mollys
  • 1 pleco
  • 1 betta
  • 2 bala sharks

From what I've learned so far, all of these fish seem to be compatible. Are they? And also, is this too many fish for a 29 gallon tank?

I am also highly considering adding a few more danios to the existing 6, to make a more complete school.

you problem will be the bala sharks,they can get to around 10-12 inches
if not bigger,they do better in a big number,they can jump out oif the tank apparently
if scared.
now i've not kept these fish befor,this is just what i have seen of them on the internet.

I Would Also Watch With Your Mollys ANd Your Betta, Mollys Can Be Quite Nippy Fish At Times,And May Go For The Poor Boys Tail!!
