I agree with a few things mentioned here. First, 300 gallons would be a good sized tank for a cat shark. I also agree that keeping sharks is cruel to some degree. Keeping pelagic sharks or larger species like nurse or black tip sharks is best left to public aquariums. Bamboo and cat sharks are benthic and not as active as other shark species. However, I would not raise the shark from an egg. The young shark could be delicate.

Thanks for all your replies, decided against the shark. I like my fish to be as happy and healthy as can be and I don't think id be able to provide that in my current aquarium. Thank again.

Shark Tank

They talked by their overall appearance. That is dumb to say "what language they told me in". How can we ever know the fish we keep are happy in their small environments? Do they tell you? No we can only assume base off how they look and act. The sharks in the tank looked healthy and generally happy swimming and eating. I also suggest against sharks in a 180 gallon, but again people want sharks and cat and bamboo are the sharks I would recommend to people. Because like one person already said "they do not move around and are not an active shark". I would also suggest nothing smaller than a 300 gallon for at lest only 1 or 2 small sharks. Plus massive filtration.

I took it as a joke and by the comments on the posts, the others did too.

You will not have any issues with a coral catshark or a whitespotted bamboo shark in a 300 gallon as long you don't cover the tank with live rock. You are going need massive filtration though because these bad boys are filthy. They will also flip any live rock you have stacked nice and pretty. It would help if it was a deep dimensions tank like 6ft x 3ft The height is not that important. As far as language that sharks speak I think it depends on where they are from.
