Jimbo7 and ccCapt: I appreciate the answer to my question. I will section my tank off right away and get the appropriate food. I Was searching the forum for aquarium lovers for more insight than what I have already received from the store and reading.
Jimbo7 it is a bamboo cat shark. At least that is what the owner of the fish store and what was on the tag on the tank. Other than that I was taking their word. The owner also asked what size tank I had. He only sales bamboo cat sharks and only to those who have big enough tanks. Yes, it is more than big enough to hold a 4 foot shark. Although the owner told me they get any where from 24 to 36 inches. It is the only thing that will be living in my tank. Its been a boring 4 months. Only had the egg for 7 weeks. Finally some movement.
I suppose if I said I had a 1,000 gal
tank that wouldn't make some of you happy. I admire your love for your hobby/profession. It would be more helpful to anwer the question than not to answer the question. Your not answering could have put that very thing that you say you love in an immediate danger. When you could have answered the question and then voiced a concern on tank size and possible solutions if you felt it was inadequate.
HN1 I respect your answer and thank you also. Hinds04 I'm not sure if your answer was towards me or someone else.
melosu58 the above paragragh is for you also.
Although I really do not want to answer on tank size. Because you just cared about your own appetite. My tank is: 300 gal
wide dimensions are:
96 x 30 x 24
If I see that is not enough.... I will get a bigger tank. As for now. I will continue to learn about my soon new arrival and do my very best to learn more and take care of it. In the meantime, I will find another forum that is really interested in education and helping. Than giving me their oppinion on a question I didn't ask.
Good luck to you all. Enjoy your hobby or profession.
