im debaiting on getting a smooth hound shark. i have a bamboo and was wondering if they are compatable as far as water temp etc....
p.s. is a 225 big enough?
I dare say a 225 isnt even large enough to comfortable house an adult bamboo shark, and it's surely not large enough for the smoothhound. Sharks need large footprints to be kept long term. A bamboo shark can get over 42" long, the smoothhound over 60". If the tank isnt large enough for it to comfortably swim and turn around, it's too small. So for those fish, you're talking 6 foot tanks in each direction of the footprint.
