The smallest would probably be the banded cat shark,but it can't be kept in a reef since well....it's a shark lol. You could have one if you kept it with bigger fish and had a tank over 240 gallons.

If you are really interested in keeping a shark, you might want to get the October issue of TFH. There is an article in there on what the requirements are.

I saw a banded cat snake at the lfs yesterday. Beautiful creature, but I have never felt so sorry for an animal before in my life. She (don't know gender, just feel like saying she) was sitting still on the bottom of the tank. She was a little over 2 feet long and the aquarium she was in was 5 ft by 18 in. I asked for minimum tank size and the lfs worker said he didn't know gallons, but 8 ft x 4 ft x 4 ft.
