Eat them.

EDIT: Wait, aren't you the one that had a thread about 3 fishes you got? And you put them in a small fishbowl?

Water only can hold a certain amount of oxygen.

And by the looks of it, you need to get a bigger tank.

Too much fish = Less oxygen (for them to breath).

Edit: What are the dimensions of you tank? It looks pretty small.

Are you overfeeding them?

Are you feeding them the correct food?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO! NON O NO NO NYET NYET NEIN NYET

SHARKS ARE AGGRESIVE AND TERRITORIAL!!!!
1-THEY'LL HARRASS THE OTHER FISH TO DEATH AND EACH OTHER
2-They're extremely violent
I highly advise not using these as pets
3-That light glowing right in your tank. Causes stress

I read 3 entire books on aquariums, and read up specificity on beta fish. I read that these sharks are not good as pets for their aggressiveness. Another choice maybe?
Done!

I'm sorry that they keep dying on you, OP.

Also, fairly small for a shark...I must say.

Maybe they are dying because they were from a bad batch, or maybe there's something about the water.

Silent, I don't think you read the right books.

Bala sharks are popular aquarium fish. These fish are generally peaceful and good companions to many other types of tropical fish. The nickname "shark" is used because of their torpedo shaped bodies and long fins. They are not actual sharks. Bala sharks are widely available in most pet stores, but these fish may grow to a size too large for the home aquarium. Also the bala shark is a jumper fish and may injure itself on the lid of a tank.

They are not Territorial at all. Let alone violent.

They're probably as violent as normal piranhas are. The plant eating ones.
