Welcome to MASA, sorry but even the smallest sharks require huge tanks (3-4m +) they need specialist care and should probably be left in the sea.
There are many smaller reef fish that you can look after and enjoy much easier.

Stingrays, will require a HUGE tank, I would not suggest starting marines with this kind of livestock.

Get a system up and running and learn the art then start looking at the exotic fish

Must agree with Warr, Ive been on this forum for 6 months now and Im still learning, I dont even have a Display yet, so take it easy read and learn from MASA as you will be spending lots of $$$$

To be honest, there aren't many tanks that could take a bamboo shark - or anyother shark for that matter, you should have a rethink i believe, as much as you want a shark, they really don't belong in tanks.

Sorry to be all doom and gloom fella, but i'm trying to save you lots of grief.

Dude, that is down right cruel, sharks are big swimmers and they need loads of space, even the smaller species are only suggested in 2000L + tanks.

Also there not many reefers that have tanks to take care of this creature and the guys with monster tanks, generally have sharks or are not interested.

Here some details on the Bamboo shark, size of your tank is too small IMO.

The other thing that concerns me, is look at care level.

Think long and hard before getting of these beautiful creatures
