In a 150? I'm not sure. I think I read they grow like a foot a year so maybe 1 to 1-1/2 years depending on the size it reaches by then.

I wouldn't do the stingray as already said and I honestly don't see myself making another thread about the shark or anything else for that manner. At least not here. Too many assumptions made by people who lack any information and am just turned off by rude comments. I've mostly relied on my friends with their own experiences and google for any help I need or whatever.

Were you talking about a coral catshark? They MAX out at 27". The PNGs max out at 29" and are not active. Heres a vid.

I'm sorry but a 12x18 container for a shark is tiny.

If you haven't ordered it yet you might want to order one that's a little wider than 25". Your shark is going to grow to 42" or so. They need swimming space and in a 25" wide tank he'll have a tough time just turning around.

They max out at 42". Usually about three feet. What do you think about a coral cat in a 150?

While its not realistic for most people, this is how sharks should be kept.

500 + gallon shark lagoon

Though if you're going to get a 300, what's another 200 gallons? Lol

As I stated earlier, stingrays need a HUGE open sandbed. I wouldn't put one in a 150. If you're looking to start a predator tank there is plenty of awesome fish that can go in a 150.

Ya I know but I REALLY wanted a shark or stingray (elasmobranch). I know the cortez are the smallest and I thought they would be fine in a 150 since theyre relatively small.
