The Bala Shark is known to
be a very good jumper. In captivity you must take care to
ensure their aquarium is closed tight. This is especially
important when you first put them into a new tank as they
may be uncomfortable for a few days.
Bala Sharks can get along with most other fish. This makes
it an ideal candidate for community tanks. Bala Sharks
are omnivorous, and when full grown, may eat smaller fish.
When full grown Bala Sharks can reach over 1 foot in length
although in captive environments 8 inches is usually the largest
a Bala Shark will grow. They are fast swimmers and enjoy swimming
around the aquarium which means that they will need quite
a large aquarium to do so properly.
