talk to me about sharks

does anyone keep or know much about keeping small shark species in home aquariums??

i know the bala shark and red tail shark arent really sharks as they have no teeth,but they just resemble sharks, i found a site that said bala sharks reach 18 inches and require to be in schools of 6 or more,but it didnt go into detail about what siz aquarium needed..

is there any nice small fresh or salt water shark type fish that can be kept in a home aquarium 60 gallons or less? or what would be a minumum size aquarium needed to house some nice sharks??

I don't know much about the species you're talking about other than that they get rather large and can be aggressive. However, I'd suggest checking out the TFK side of the forum - they should be able to tell you as much info as you need and then some.

It's funnier in Enochian.
