Hello there, I recently started a 37 gallon freshwater aquarium and I was planning out what fish I want to get. My question is do you think I could get away with:
1 bala shark
1 striped peacock eel
2 silver dollars
1 dragon goby
1 black ghost knife
1 angelfish
and 1 plecostomus if I buy them all when they are small?
I know that one day they will out grow the tank but how long do you think that would take?

Thanks for your help

the first 5 will outgrow that tank in a matter of months, less then 6.

thats overcrowded and a little aggressive.

Bala sharks are a schooling fish, and need to be kept in groups. And they need AT LEAST 55 gallons to roam in, and actually more...

Yeah you are going to be replacing tanks very fast and with those fish you are looking atleast around 200g for them to be somewhat comfortable and healthy, possibly closer to 300g for optimal health and vitality.
