Okay..... I've had a shark and had to rehome him to someone with 125 gallon tank. Are you willing to upgrade by that much?

It's important to remember that fishkeeping is about the fish, it's not about you and what you want. It's about what the fish need. The shark needs a larger tank. This is where doing research PRIOR to purchasing fish really helps. You don't fall in love with something that will certainly die because you cannot keep it properly.

If you do not know about the nitrogen cycle (cycling) and how it affects your fish, please read: I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!

Welcome to AA! I am assuming that you got on this forum to help learn about fishkeeping. Right? I also am new to freshwater fish, and this forum has helped me tremendously. So please, please read the articles they advise and listen to what they tell you. You won't be sorry, and you will have a wonderful experience with your new hobby.

What size tank do you think you'll upgrade to? You shouldn't have two sharks unless you have maybe 300 gallons. Even I don't have the room for that....
