    I've got a 250 liter tank that has been running for 5 months with:
    1xBlack Ghost Knife
    1xFire Eel
    1xPeacock Eel
    3xAngels
    1xPleco

    I want to add 3 Bala Sharks and a male betta.
    Would these additions be ok, or am I adding to many,or what other fish would be better choices...

    Thanks

    sounds lika nice setup.pics please ,2 of those fish listed allready get huge 30cm +
    and balas as much as I love them also get 20cm+ and 15cm+ in hieght .so the tank might handle the fish now depending on your filtration,but give it 6 months to a year and might be diff story.
    the best way to go about it is decide wich is your primary fish in the tank ,the one you love the most and do a compatabilty search on google to see what can be added .

    Hi Brydon
    Your tank is as it is already very mixed and for exsample the BGK should ideally kept in small groups. They also don't like to fast flowing water while your bala shark prefers that. Also your pleco most properly would like a mate.
    From the size of the tank i don't see a problem rather from the general fitting together of the fish. I think a school of small/medium sized tetras like neons, glow lights, blood tetra, widows are in my opinion better fitting.
    But thats my opinion
