    that was someone else lets not go down the road that that post led to. but basically no shark can fit in a 55, the biggest issue is that in no time the tank would not be wide enough for him to turn around and swim.

    You can't be serious. You have 41 posts and one of them is giving me a hard time about trying to help people. I made a suggestion that will better this board and better this section. If You wanted a shark like many people do, Bam there is all the wonderful information you would ever need at the top of this section.
    Simple. Fast. keeps the question from being asked weekly. In fact a mod liked the idea and if I made a poll it would pass with a 100% yes ratio. Now go away. Stop looking to stir up stuff for zero reason.

    Ha,.. no I wasn't, however I can see how it could look that way. It is just disheartening to see negativity.

    It is disheartening to see stupidity, CK has a good idea why say anything? you can read the post before you hit reply. It should be common sense, can you keep a SHARK
    in 55g's of water even if your new to the hobby, im sure you've watched discovery channel or something.

    To clarify, I said "you can read the post before you hit reply". But I am not trying to argue, I am just trying to build my post count to I can share my opinion.... I have 43 now CK =o)

    ofcourse you can but you didn't give the person advice, your post was discouraging CK. and to clarify I said the same thing, if you don't like his idea move your mouse away from the "quote" button.

    Done. I am going to edit out the bickering. Hopefully we can get back to helping out the OP here.
