Although I find it interesting to watch these sharks the IPU I feel that they are in such a small tank.....there are many threads about these sharks on MFK where people do have them, they are usually in 7000g+ shark ponds.
i think the tank there is FAR too small, while its neat to see the shark swimming around, its sad he has to swim around in such tight circles due to lack of space.
its just like a scaled up version of the bettas in those little 250-500mL containers, except i dont think the bettas are intended to live in those little cups forever.

A gentleman I did some landscaping work for a few years ago Has 4000 gallon set in his basement and he has a few black tip reef sharks in that tank. It's a very nice set up.
