Nooby shark question

Hello,
I was wondering what all of the shark species are that can be kept in a home aquarium, and what their basic minimum tank size requirements, I would especially like to know about horn sharks, mostly the one with the genus name starting with H. and the species name starting with F.
Thanks in advance!

Any part of this question would be greatly appreciated if you know or have experience with it. Thanks

P.S. I am aware of the increased level of difficulty that sharks have and that they require big dedicated tanks (which is mostly why I'm asking this)

There aren't any true "sharks" that I can think of, Bala's, are a type of minnow, Red Tails aren't true sharks. Iridescant, Black, and Bull are a type of Catfish I believe. Are these what you are refering to?

If you want to see a shark tank done right, look here: 500 + gallon shark lagoon
