I would use a 250 gallon tank as a minimum size for any shark species.

Make sure the tank is an oval or circle shape.

I currently own three sharks Coral cat shark would require the smallest tank of what I have. The gallons matter but not as much as the floor space. For a coral cat to live forever I would recommend at least 5-6ft long by 3ft wide. The height does not matter. My current tank is 1000 gallons 7x7x3. Squared tank is fine for coral cat shark.
