TBH, if size is an issue at all, sharks are best left alone

The goal is not to get the smallest tank possible to house the shark. The goal is to get the BIGGEST tank you can get and then purchase smaller sharks that feel extremely comfortable in that aquarium.

You want your shark to thrive, not barely survive.

This is why i have given up on "swimming sharks". I have a lagoon that can and has housed them, and ive had some pretty outrageous, in retrospect, sharks live in it, ie. Lemon, BTR, even smoothhounds and etc.
But with time and experience i believe that this is an unrealistic practice.

Now i look at my lagoon and see that it is really perfect for adult carpet sharks.
