My newly added fish ended up dead. I saw my Chinese algae eater attacking my small cat fish so realized that he is the problem. He was ok for about 5 months and then went on his killing spree of all new fish. Very bad.

Even though its not recommended to have tigerbarbs with angel fish, I haven't had a problem yet! The only reason I think that there isn't any problems is because the angel fish is over 5 inches in size, so they are intimidated by its size. They still generally leave each other alone.

I have 3 Bala sharks. When we bought them we had no idea they would get so large. They have grown as if on steroids. The largest is about 8" long the other 2 about 6" long. I have to find them a new home now, as they are only in a 55 gal. tank. That is what led me to this web sight. I also have 1 large cichlid and 2 smaller cichlids. The sharks eat pellets voraciously along with flakes, krill, tubifex, and bloodworms. I think they would eat a quarter-pounder with cheese and fries (super-size,of course!),if given the opportunity. They are extremely hardy and not aggressive, but given the tank size cause me to do frequent water changes even though I have an oversized filter (for a 110) and undergravel filtration with oversized powerheads. We have grown to like these fish alot and I know we will miss them, but a larger tank just isn't feasible for us.

This last Sunday I purched two bala sharks and am looking up all my fish to know a little more about them. I didn't know that they were an endangered species, Wow. This site is very helpful and the information is great. Thanks Miss Princess

This site helped me alot! I never knew that you could feed them little vegetables. AND I never knew that Bala Sharks where endangered... And that they can get up to 14 inches. I have a 5 gallon tank with 3 Bala Fish in it, but the are only about 3 or 2 inches. I better go get a bigger tank... I'll go get a bigger tank within the week. THANKS!

Thank you so much for this internet site. It helped me alot. One of my Bala Sharks is pregnant and I have no idea what to do, so I might call my dogs vet and ask for help. But your other information was very clear.
THANKS!

The Siamese algae eater is in fact a totally different fish. More placid and generally well suited to a community unlike the chinese algae eater.

I have a shoal of 5. They are top swimmers in my 24" deep tank. They seem very easy to keep, are very active, and I would recommend them highly.
