I've had one for a 2 months now. i feed him flakes, daily he gets tubiflex worms, and a couple of times a week he gets beefheart.

i have read that as they get older, they require salt in the water.

i would also like to mention that a 15 gallon tank is really small for that fish.

They get very large and will require almost full SW by adult hood.

Silver Tipped sharks get larger than Bala's and almost as big as Iridescent Sharks. Anyone who complains about balas or iridescents will hound you about this fish being too big for you to keep.

They are cool to watch and look really neat when they school!

Gonna get like 2ft long. It's actually a brackish fish that will require full marine as an adult... but I think you should have it in Low-end brackish right now.

Way too big for a 15, way too big for a 55 when full grown.

I have a 4" columbian in my brackish tank. Between him and my Violet Gobies I will need at the very minimal a 180g tank when full grown.

Actually, I think they only get to 14" but you are definitely right about the other stuff. Also, adults need at least a 5 ft tank.
