Just got good news. It says avg length between 40 cm and 50 cm (15.7 in and 19.7 in). So its POSIBBLE if I get a male I could keep it for its whole life. Coral catshark (Atelomycterus marmoratus)
Again do you know how much smaller the males get than the females?

About 2"-5" size difference.

Thanks!! I've decided not to get one. I'll wait for awhile to get my 8x3.

MA GOODNESS! I found a shark tank on CL. It's a 2 hour drive but worth it. It's on for 400 for the tank stand and filter and it's 7x2x2 so its a 210g tank

7x2x2 isn't a "shark tank", it is a very big tank, but its still a 3+ foot shark in a 2 foot wide tank. End of story.

A coral banded's average length for a male is 24" and female 28". I'm not getting a bamboo or black banded so please don't just go on assuming every shark must have some kind of ocean in your home.

Haha sorry wrong shark thread. Seems like everyone is buying sharks at once. Most sharks, however, do need a small ocean to truly thrive. Not just survive. A coral shark could be kept in that. It will obviously be about at long as the tank is wide. Seems like a good deal though.

Its all good. I know there are a few sharks such as Black tips which I just can't picture in a home.

Yet they find their way there. Even the bamboo and black banded, and all the 3+ footers needing 3-400 gallons or more. That's what I mean when I say small ocean lol
