Question

that site says that 180 gallons is a good minimum for both of those sharks....or was i supposed to ignore that and look more at care?

Liveaquaria does have some great info in general on the site, but a few specifics are wrong/not well put. 180G would be a bare minimum for the sharks, hence the Minimum tank size, as in you should have bigger for them

There are exceptions to this, but liveaquaria's info is not always hard fact

Question

ok...so i might be mistaken in saying this (but i REALLY hope i'm not) but would having a single horn shark (Heterodontus francisci) in a 200 gallon aquarium be all right? i'm a bit afraid to ask

And even though I do agree with you that not just LA but all others do have conflicting info I would believe LA before I would any of the others. I believe there info to be the best out there. Yes they dont have everything right but I believe they are pretty close. JMO.

If you look at that shark it is also called a Horn shark. Read the description.

i know that its also called a horn shark ,but it ISNT Heterodontus francisci. this shark is smaller and goes generally by the name horn shark, or sometimes calfiornia horn shark i think, sorry for being unclear.
