The banded catshark needs a much bigger tank.. I ask that you re-home him, it would be a win-win situation.

How many pounds of rock do you have when you say "min. Live rock"?

Ultimately, BigRed is right. I didn't go and look back or remember all of those threads.
You shouldn't be keeping that shark in this tank, especially because it isn't round.
I'm sorry to say, but nobody will want to help you if you don't listen to us.

I understand what you saying. But I had already had the shark egg so I wasn't just going to get rid of it that's why I got rid of a lot of the other fish.. Like all my tang.. And that's why I'm trying to upgrade my tank.. I'm just asking with all my fish being small do I have atleast by the end of the year "4months" to keep the ones have now housed in my 225

I still wouldn't be keeping the shark, even in a bigger tank if it wasn't made specifically for a shark. When you got "rid of" fish, the shark should have been the first to go.
Also, the end of the year is 6 months, not four.
