Hey you guys, speaking of sharks, I was wondering if I can keep a bunch of moorish idols and some black tipped sharks together in my 55?

Those salt shakers are cool, man, I ordered 100 of them.

He said that keeping sharks is much easier then keeping a reef. They are easy to feed and there is no special additives like a reef. He thinks it is just like keeping a fish only tank but a lot bigger. He says the hardest part about his sharks is doing a 125 gallon water change each month and that is easy but time consuming. He has also got is 2 banded cat sharks to bread and he sold the eggs to our LFS. So fishfreak and lando I don't no where you come up with this info. about having to have special knowledge to keep these sharks.
You have actually already stated that opinion in another thread and the result was the same. It just happens to be under a different user name.

Having the time and money to waste â‰* a successful venture. An animals life should never be reduced to $$.

flatzboy, Get your facts stright. I didnt say it requred a special ed. I said they had special requirements. Since most are bottom dwellers they dont need a deep tank and I had heard stories about sharks damaging themselves by running into the side glass. Hence a standard shaped tank can be less desiarbale than a more circular tank. Most sharks will prefer a sandy bottom vs a rocky bottom and the desire for a bunch of liverock can be an issue with sharks aswell.

Remember dont tap the glass, your fish will think you're an idiot -Anonymous mother
