Probably not...What kind of little shark? Most sharks get big quickly and most need large tanks with excellent filtration and with rounded corners.

I would never put a shark in anything under a 300g tank, even a banded cat shark. liveaquaria states 180g as its minimum but that's a bit absurd. the max size is over 3 feet long! you would be best served looking into other fish and not wasting valuable tank stocking on this shark

You can really aquascape it any way you want. Like states above no shark can fit in the size tank you have. I'd aquascape it with plenty of caves and a good open sand bed in the front. You could stock so many cooler medium sized fish in there than a shark.
