I have a 2.5 yr old banded bamboo shark, he is almost 2' long now, they grow really fast, literally can't believe how big he has gotten, pretty cool fish.
you would need a huge tank to house one. Mine is 800 gallons, and good filtration, I run a skimmer rated up to 5000 gallon tank, an algae scrubber, a fuge , and have close to 800lbs of live rock.
a shallow tank with a big footprint would work too, they mainly sit on the bottom most of the time. Mine goes crazy at feeding time, sucks up peices of squid like a vacuum.
if you really want a shark tank it's doable but pricey and you need a lot of space
