Some pics of the shark tank

Inhabitants so far is a Brown Banded Bamboo Shark, a Marbled Cat Shark and a Snowflake Moray Eel.

I've got 2 Blue Spotted Stingrays coming in Tuesday. I'm also on the lookout for a Smoothound Shark and maybe one or two more Bamboo's soon.











I want to get an Epaulette too, but they've shot up in price here now to a ridicules amount.

Both sharks get hand fed and growing well. All 3 animals eat like absolute pigs. The Bamboo's incredibly active. She's constantly out and about. The Marbled shark only comes out for a few hours a day and it has to be pitch black. The Eel only comes out when he smells food.

The Bamboo's female so she'll can get up to 3.4ft. She's 2ft at the moment. She'll grow a few more inches then hits maturity so starts to then grow very slowly.

The Marbled is a male, so he'll top out at just under 2ft. He's 1.5ft at the moment.

I'll need a bigger tank eventually, but this one will do them a few years yet.

The tank their in at the moment is 510 litres. 5x2.5x2.5. Hoping to upgrade to an 8x4x2 in a few years or a small pond.

Only got one stingray today as the suppliers decided to only send one in instead of two. He's settled in pretty well it seems. Fairly active. Still a pup, only about a 4" disk or so.

Lol. He's pretty tame too which is good. The only one with a temper is the marbled shark. The buggers bitten me a few times now.
