Very much a newbie
Hi! I don't even have my tank yet, but I have an used one coming. It is a 100 gallon and after cycling it, I want to put a few angel fish in it and I was wondering if balla sharks would make good tank mates? I am quite sure EVERYONE on here is more experienced than I am and opinions are very welcome. I used to have a 75 gallon tank and it did quite well and I am sure it was just luck because I didn't do too much with it except add water when it evaporated and do semi annual water changes. I ended up giving my fish away and selling the tank. Anyway, I want to do this correctly and have a beautiful tank with healthy and happy fish in it.

Welcome to the forum. I hope your tank turns out beautifully.

(From reading the fish profiles (second tab from the left at the top of the forum) I don't think angelfish and bala sharks would be a good match. You need groups of both, angelfish like slow currents and can be stressed by active tankmates which is says the bala sharks are.)

Thank you so much for telling me about the fish profile tab. I think I have made my decision on what fish to get. A severum cichlid. Depending on cost, I would like to get about 5 of them to start. I will have to price them though as I am not very rich lol
