Just saw a beautiful 15 foot long tank with bala sharks in it and couldnt help taking a pic for fellow fish lovers.

Terribly low for bala sharks, however, that are known jumpers. Lengthwise, great. Height, not so great. The sharks I can see in it look like babies.

But boy, wouldn't huge schools of tetra's love that?

Maybe the pic hasnt come out well as I could only take it from a distance and that too with my mobile camera. From what I could estimate, its a 15x24x24 tank. Agreed the prorportions could have been better, but even at this it works out to about a 450 gallon tank.

There were 6 bala sharks in it, each of them looking approximately 9-10 inches in size. I dont know much about bala sharks except for what I keep reading on the forum, but I believe they can grow up to about 12-14 inches and need a school. So dont know if this set up is exactly the best for them or not.

Tetras would definetely love such a tank. Personally, I would love to see a large school of tiger barbs in them, having seen them swim in sychrony in a simillar tank elsewhere.

Yes, the distance away has certainly distorted the dimensions and the size of the sharks. By the photo, it looked to be about 15" high. Thanks for clearing that up.

If you could get enough to go around the entire room...you would have sharks circling you constantly...

Awesome tank, never would have occurred to me to build one that long. Not movable that I can imagine.
