Maybe the aquarium will let me raise a baby till it gets to big :/ doubtful though! Or maybe I get a job at the aquarium ! Lol

Sharks are great. I currently own three (white spotted bamboo 2ft, banded hound shark 2ft, coral cat shark 2ft 3in ). A few things generally I would double whatever any sales website says. Lots of open swimming space especially for any species of hound shark as they are more active. Water volume regardless of what anyone says does matter. The more water the cleaner it will stay. Sharks are messy. There is no such thing as to much filtration. You need to cycle the water at least 8 times per hour and a skimmer that can do double what the water volume is. Besides that I find sharks to be easier to care for than any of my other fish. Ps they will grow faster than u think. The Internet states that bamboo sharks will grow 4-6 inches per year. Mine grew over 12 inches in one year.
