Still get very large. The biggest problem I've seen with them is they can be clumsy and move stuff around and knock stuff over once they get larger

You need really fine substrate. Also I recommend that you set up LR stacked up near the back corners only so it has a much room for it to roam as possible.

I agree completely, if the substrate isnt very fine the shark is at risk of infection,that being said your tank maintenance will be more complicated, being You really can't have any cleanup crew and substrate is harder to clean, another route is mix crush coral with fine argonite sand mix. 1/4 crush coral the rest should all be sand, I've seem that done once or twice with shark inhabited tanks.
