I have a banded bamboo shark, he is over 3 ft long and has been extremely hardy through some tough tank situations. The only thing that harms them really is copper, no one at my LFS mentioned that when I medicated my tank and he does seem to bite around food more than at the food but he eats plenty, they love squid and pretty much anything else. He has not attacked any of my fish. he did bite my eels tail once but it was right next to food. the only problem I would say is that one side of my tank has no sand on the edge due to the sharks digging it up over there and he is big enough that he will move rocks when food is stuck in between rocks. but anyways he is awesome and has been very easy.

I have never had a shark but go to www.grimreefers.com. They have a shark forum. I have heard that they are hard to get eating. HTH.

EDITED: Sorry I didnt see you had a file on it.

Not all sharks get that big. While others can grow to seven times that size.

Hatched the same shark about 4 years ago.

Just an FYI - I found that if you held food (meaty foods like krill, squid, etc) right near him and sort of moved it around, he went for it. Otherwise, he wouldn't go out of his way to find food. He'd go a little crazy, swimiming back and forth on the bottom if he smelt it - but, wouldn't eat until I placed it right in front of his face.

Good luck with him. Cool looking fish.

Feed him extra heavily while he is young. Krill, squid, mysid shrimp, live ghost shrimp, anything he will take. Remember, they get absolutely HUGE and will add a tremendous amount to your bioload.

They are fairly docile and should not be placed with aggressive fish such as triggers.
