    No... The bala and ghost knife grows longer than a foot and will eventually eat everybody else in the tank....

    It’s your tank...it’s up to you....with what u mentioned though, you will see the smaller fish disappear,... but before that they’ll be stressed out... as Dax said, those fish get huge - your tank is minimum for one fully grown... You maybe happier if you stock it with fish from within the same region (with similar water quality needs)... and fewer species... right now you have fish from different habitats in the same tank...also, it’s much more satisfying (imho) to see a school of the same fish - with one or two larger fish (that are compatible) than a mix of this or that... not a dig, but ultimately your fish will be far more happier with some research before purchasing, as will your fish keeping experience...

    Keep fishes that will thrive in your water parameters. Read, research, and read some more. Look before you jump so you don't end up in the same situation you're in right now. Don't beat yourself too hard tho. We all make mistakes in the beginning. I've been fish keeping for over 10 yrs and I still make mistakes and still learning. I normally start by figuring out what fishes to keep. You can go species only, a community tank, or a breeding colony. Make sure the fishes you want to keep will not outgrow the tank. Tank mates should be compatible to hang out together to avoid fin nipping or munching each other. Then plan the layout of the tank (rocks, wood, plants) that will work with the fishes you want to keep. Some prefer lots of hiding places, some wants plenty of room to maneuver, and some just doesn't care. Plant keeping is on the next chapter that require just as much research than fishes themselves. You can also start by googling pictures of many styles of tanks and you will eventually find one that appeals to you (provided that your goal is within your budget). Don't get discouraged. Plenty of us here to help (~_^).

    I often use this site when researching a new fish species to see if they're a good match for my tanks: https://www.seriouslyfish.com/
    Good luck!

    Probably. Odds are better if you come in knowing what fish you want instead and ask for store credit or an exchange.
