Bamboo sharks(Cat sharks) are essentially all you could have in a tank that small (Shark-wise).

There are marbled and banded types.

They are animals that require a lot of attention and experience, not to be taken lightly and should be kept by only very experienced aquarists

Yes, I agree, keeping sharks is a job for large public aquariums that can support the kind of room even a small shark requires to be happy. Your option is to buy a tiny shark and then hope he doesn't outgrow your system. Lots of people buy them and lots of dead ones get disposed of.
