If the tank you are talking about is fresh water tropical with a temp of 75 degrees, with a few dark areas so the shark you select has a place too hide, "a fresh water shark is shy" you can select any of the popular ones from your pet store, just remember, big fish, eat little fish, if you purchase a small shark and you have large fish in your tank.

You can also have a nurse shark which is the safest. But you'll need something bigger than a fish tank =)


Answer. Leopard sharks and Cat Sharks are commonly placed in salt water aquariums. They are very small and adapt well to aquariums.


You could also havae a dogfish in there but not in the same tank make sure the tank is a lot bigger than the shark
