What would it take to make this a reality?

Ok so I live in Daytona Beach, shark bite capital of the world. Went fishing this morning and caught a mess of baby hammerhead and bonnet head sharks. So my questions is... How hard would it be to turn a good sized kiddy/above ground pool into a shark tank? I mean all I would need is some sand, circulation, and water. its the middle of summer right now so I think the sun would be enough heat. it wouldnt be a long term thing, maybe just a month or so to say i've done it. I could just catch baby sharks out of the river/inlet and throw them into my "tank" lol. Is this something that I can actually do?

I personally dont think you should or that it will work. They need a large area to swim in and even though the heat might be OK now it wont be this winter. I personally dont think it`s a good idea. JMO

I don't think its a good idea either. What would you do with them after a month or so? You shouldn't return them to the ocean afterwards.

as freakin cool as it sounds, I have to agree. I don't think they would ever be able to be released back into the wild.

God that would be tempting though.

What's the point. In your case you are equiped for the shark. A kiddy pool just won't work.IMO
What's the sheesh all about?????

Before you even begin to consider that you better check with your area's fish and wildlife laws and regs about keeping fish you catch.
