"I really love these fish! I have 2 that are about 4 inches long. I got them about 6 months ago when they were babies. they were maybe an inch long and thats it. The most common mis-information is that these are really Sharks and that they are a fresh water fish. This is WRONG! They are Catfish for one, the reason they are called sharks is because for their dorsel fin. They are also a brackish water fish. Meaning they need low level salt to be healthy. I have mine in a 20 gallon tank at this time but will be move them when they get bigger. The other fish in with them are 2 Green Spotted Puffers. Theses are great tank mates. with the 4 fish in the tank, i keep the tank at about 79 degrees, and a saltity level of 22 ppt. both of these types of fish are meet eaters. I feed mine frozen mysis shrip in the morning and flake/pellets in the afternoon. Every now and then I give them small bits of real shrimp. Man they all LOVE that! I'm thinking about putting in a couple of live guppies in for some live food. The puffers and sharks both need meat to be healthy. These fish are very fun to have and tend to be playful. They swim together and lay at the bottom together. Except when feeding, they tend to chase each other off. They love a varity of things to swim around and hide in. I have many plants and a driftwood tunnel at the bottom as well as sunken titanic. They love swiming through the tunnel and around the ship. Sometimes many times in minutes. They take some maintenance; partial water chages, filter changes, and you must use a vacumn pump to clean the wast at the bottom of the tank. They like a clean tank, though they don't like you to clean it. But you must. lol"
