IMO, what's the point of this shark? It doesn't swim around, it hides under rock all day and only comes out when the tank is being fed. We have one in a 210g that's about 18" long and has been that long for four months. He's doing fine and looks healthier than when we got him. In a 75g with two other large fish, and two clowns? What a waste of money.. but as it is always pointed out, this hobby is about the pleasure of the observer -- though I'm hard fetched to find pleasure in causing the death of several innocent creatures.

If he's going to keep him, at least have him offer live food every week or so in addition to normal feedings (such as guppies). I bet the LFS loves this guy..

I think he meant that demodiki might say something that could get him banned like swearing at the guy who has no regard for a fish's wellbeing. I hear ya demodiki.
