I would not go with the sharks - then again, I've had this argument time and time again with people about how having to remove a fish from your tank because it's gotten big causes unneeded stress on the fish, on you, and on your tank in general (sometimes catching the little buggers requires a lot more tearing apart your tank than you'd like)

Personally I'd stick with a fish that you can keep for the long haul. I love sharks, they're beautiful, elegant, and awesome to watch - but they also have very specific needs. Don't become one of the idiots on youtube posting a shark WAY too big for the tank that it's in.

Not passing judgement, just making the suggestion. It takes a very special kind of care to keep a shark in an environment in which it will thrive. While 180/300 may be the minimum requireds for the sharks you mentioned, I personally believe they shouldn't be housed in anything that small either.

Thank you so much. Every once in awhile I get that little hope. I think coral cats should have An 8x3 tank. That's my dream build. Thanks again. For bandeds I think 10x5. I treat them like fish, not eels lol.

I kept a porcupine many years ago, in a tank far too small for a porcupine (it was a baby, and I did eventually donate him to a friends 300 when he got too big), and he was by far the most entertaining fish I've ever owned. Constantly hanging at the top of the tank, coming to the surface to be fed by hand etc

Super awesome choice of a fish
