I'm about to buy a big 6ft tank to rehome my 2 Bala Sharks and 2 Clown Loaches... However I have read up and understood that Clown Loaches are in the same 'family' as Tiger Barbs, so I'm wondering if I could mix Tiger Barbs, Clown Loaches and Bala Sharks together? If so what other 'smaller' fish such as Neon Tetra's (I understand they are not compatable) would I be able to put in?
Yes the three fish you mention are all cyprinids and will usually live together fine,
(Cyprinids include Barbs, Rasboras, Danios, Sharks, and Loach)
In a 6foot tank you could have a nice asian biotope, and personally i would up the number of both the Sharks and Clowns and then add in a few large shoals of tiger barbs, gold barbs and giant danios, with a group of siamese algae eaters for the bottom,
away from cyprinids, any larger tetra species, Rainbows, medium sized cichlids, larger gouramis, pleco and catfish should work with those two species
