    Hey So I am both sad, depressed and scratching my head all at the same time. I have a female Aussie Epaulette Shark that is about 26" long. She lives in a 300 gallon circular tank. I found her this morning at about 10 am out of the tank on the ground. She probably fell 2' as the tank sits on...

    Could you have a coral tank with sharks? That would mean no inverts considering the shark would eat most of them but just the shark and corals. Just a question, I'm not upgrading anytime soon.
