Are there any sharks or rays?

Are there any sharks or rays that could live in a 150g long term that are for sale? Normal temp range also. I know my fish would PROBABLY not work unless the individuals were a rare exeption but I was just wondering about this as I have wanted a shark and ray for years. Thanks!

My marine science teacher has a 7" pacific nurse shark in a 125g in the class. Idk what he is going to do with it, but he knows he can't keep it there forever. A coral banded cat shark could probably live most of it's life in a 150g.

The smallest shark commonly available, the Coral Catshark (Atelomycterus marmoratus) grows to about 28". Unless you have an 8' tank, look for something else besides a shark.
