ANY sharks for a tank UNDER 300 gals? Or stingray?

Is there any shark that can be in a tank under 300 gals? or rays? Preferably 150. Ive heard of people with coral cats in 150s, just wondering. Also, would cortez rays work?

stingrays need a lot of sand bed space. i wouldn't keep any shark in a 150 for very long. sorry!
what about something like an angler? they are awesome fish and don't need a large tank at all....

Wartskin angler. Agreed! Definitely a head turner.

Its going to eat whatever it can fit in its mouth. Some say they can eat fish the same size they are.
