  4. moraymike and sharks

    They did sell sharks a number of years back... Not sure why they decided to stop. Probably something to do with all the folks trying to put bamboos in 55 gallon tanks :thinking: Maybe not?

    Yep, I had a Bumblebee before. I'm not surprised, mine tried to eat a horn shark that was much bigger than it was... Very neat groupers, but get way too BIG!

    no more shark

    Yeah, I completely understand why you'd want more flexiblity with your tank. If the shark just doesn't fit in your plans, find it a good home. A few thoughts on coral cat sharks... I have them and really enjoy them. However, they aren't for everyone. They are rarely active during the day...
