The Marbled Cat Shark is considered a "true catshark" with a long slender body and a narrow head. It is a bottom feeder that is found in Northern Australia.

The adult size of 24 inches (60 cm) makes this shark the smallest we have encountered!
The Marbled Cat Shark is considered a good aquarium choice. It is hardy and easy to take care of, though it will need a roomy marine aquarium to accommodate it when it reaches it's adult size.

He/she is talking about a marbled catshark or atelomycterus macleayi. I don't know what you mean by the smallest we have encountered? They do achieve a maximum size of 24".

They are definitely one of the smallest sharks available. And great find btw. He will be awesome in your pool/pond. Usually not available in the hobby so congrats. The smallest shark in the hobby that I'm aware of are the cool water species such as the izu catshark (max 16"). GL with your shark. And *rude. Jkjk lol
