Best Sharks for a Home Fish Tank | Aquarium Care

Watch more How to Take Care of an Aquarium videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509937-Best-Sharks-for-a-Home-Fish-Tank-Aquarium-Care When deciding on what shark to get, you want the best shark for your fish take. It first depends if you have a freshwater tank or a saltwater tank. The sharks that you'll find for freshwater tanks are not true sharks. They're not cartilaginous. They're bony fishes. Their fin patterns and their morphology closely resemble saltwater sharks, so for that reason they're called sharks, but they're not true sharks. Saltwater is where you'd find the real sharks. For freshwater, most of the shark get very, very large. The iridescent sharks, tricolor sharks, they get really, really big, I mean, three to four feet in nature, but they happen to be very hardy. So you can keep them in a small aquarium, maybe 30 to 50 gallons in size. But they're going to quickly outgrow it, and it's cruel to keep a fish that gets three or four feet in nature restricted to a tank that's only three or four feet long. It's just really, really cruel, so I don't recommend a lot of the freshwater fish that are called sharks for home aquariums. If you have to have a freshwater fish that's called a shark, you can get a redtail shark. They don't get as big. The flying foxes kind of look like sharks. They don't get terribly large. But for saltwater, the sharks that I would recommend are any of the cat sharks, bamboo, banded cats, dog chain. Those sharks stay on the bottom. Even the epaulettes from Australia, those are really cute sharks. They walk around on their pectoral fins. They also get large, so you want to make sure you have a large aquarium, but because they're not pelagic swimmers like black tips and white tips, any of the open swimming sharks, they're more suitable to home aquariums. If you have to have something that looks like a great white or a baby great white, like a black tip, you're going to need a really large tank, and those tanks are very expensive. I'm talking, people would recommend a 200 to 300 gallon tank. I wouldn't put them in anything less than 1000 gallons. That tank needs to be round in shape. It needs to be eight to ten feet in diameter. They're just not going to fare well in anything smaller. And the upkeep and the maintenance on an aquarium like that is pretty staggering. You really have to know what you're doing. You need to have a lot of money or be really into this hobby to be that dedicated to keep one these open water reef sharks. So to wrap it up, for saltwater, I would recommend one of the bottom-dwelling cat sharks. Nurse sharks are really good when they're small, but they get really large, so I don't feel that they're suitable for captivity. And then for freshwater, redtail sharks, tri-colors or balas sharks or iridescent sharks are great when they're small. But again, they're going to get really large and you're going to have to get them a much bigger tank, like the 200 to 300 gallon tank to keep them when they're adults.

Bull Sharks normally live in salt water environments but are able to venture very far upstream of rivers into fresh water because they possess a glad which is able to retain salt and release into the bloodstream in low salt environments.

+TheYogfan555 try red tailed black shark, they won't eat small fish but only keep one of them as they will gang up on small fish if kept in a group. Unfortunately most pet shops don't stock them so you if you want a red tailed shark I'd recommend going to a garden centre because they tend to have a lot more variety. About 2/3 garden centres have them. They still do sometimes fin nip at smaller fish but if you want to be 100% sure that they won't then feed them some blood worm. They are quite hardy but can get stressed easily. I would recommend getting a big cave if you want to get a red tail. They grow to about 6" and should not attack smaller fish as long as you feed it bloodworm or brine shrimp. Also, I'm happy to help anytime so feel free to ask me any questions :-)
Zerphses
Zerphses - 6 years ago
+Snipercube Thanks so much! I'll look into them, but seeing as I currently have both Tetras and Guppies in there, I'll hold off on getting them XD
Thanks for everything!
Snipercube
Snipercube - 6 years ago
+TheYogfan555 there's one called the black tip shark, if you have a 10 gallon get one or a male and a female if you want multiple males then you're gonna need about 7 so that they don't fight but I'd say your tank could maybe hold 4. Again, I've never owned tropical sharks so I just got that information from my friend who has been breeding black tips for about 10 years, also they're very hardy but require a good filtration system (they poop loads!) and you could probably put some cichlids in but NEVER put small fish such as tetras or guppies in as they'll soon be eaten, another good tank mate would be big angel fish. I asked my friend to supply me with that info so credit to him!

A lot of people fail to realize that Bull sharks are not in fact true freshwater sharks. They are simply able to adapt to freshwater. It is possible for a Bull shark to live its entire life in freshwater, however, it is uncommon do to the reproduction inconvenience. It was also shown through strategic experiments that Bull sharks live a shorter life when they regulate themselves to live in freshwater. A Bull shark is most definitely a shark.

+BloodstainedSinner I agree the sharks body will adapt to the size of the tank , making it not to small or to big. They most likely are not to die. But this is otherwise of the other special need they have like the bala shark needing the minimum of 6 other bala sharks due to it being a school fish.

I have a Red Tail in my 65 Gal freshwater/tropical, he is so active and a fun little guy to have - I would recommend to anyone thinking about getting a 'shark' looking fish!
