Visited the LFS....

Visited the LFS today and saw the coolest thing. They have a Baby Bamboo Shark for sale for only $89.00. They told me they just got him in yesterday. Wish I had a tank big enough for him as an adult to accomidize..Oh well..Just hope he gets a home with someone who has alot of experience.

ya they are beautiful animals. i see them every so often at one of our LFS. i guess thats one of the benefits of living so close to the LA airport, being able to see the more rare animals.

I really don't understand where these really have a place in the home aquarium trade. I have seen similar items at various LFS. The few I have seen at my local LFS have all come in on donation because they grew to big for the original owner and then the LFS tries to find a more suitable home for them. They are definitely a novelty and a neat item as juvenals, but I do not think many people consider how big they will really get. One LFS I visit does have a 4000g shark tank with 3 sharks (Ithink 2 nurse and 1 Bamboo and some type of Ray and a couple of eels). The tank itself is basically concrete block structure that you can only view from the top and I believe may serve as a sump for the large amount of display tanks not really much of a display like at the public aquariums.

I think if more people knew the requirements there would be less demand for these type items?

Tank: 90 Gal SW Reef in the making

See my info for setup and inhabitant details:
