Description
The Banded Shark is considered one of the best sharks for the home aquarium because of its smaller size compared to many other sharks. They prefer reefs and tide pools and are frequently found sitting in sandy areas on the ocean floor.

Sharks should not be exposed to copper based medications as this will cause illness. Like all sharks, this one has the possibility of inflicting a very painful bite, especially when provoked. Care should be taken when cleaning the display tank and feeding. Sharks tend to act aggressively toward other fish, particularly smaller ones. Be sure to house with larger, aggressive species.
Diet
Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. With time, Rays will usually learn to eat larger sinking pellet foods.
Shipping Note
All sharks and rays over 18 need a shipping crate for transport. After these shipping crates are packed for transport with animal(s) and water, they will typically weigh more than 100lbs which is heavier than what can be shipped via FedEx. These shipments have to be shipped via air freight. Our carrier of choice is South West Airlines but we do have several to choose from. The customer will be responsible for all air freight charges to be paid at the time the shipment is picked up from their local airport. Please call or email us and we will gladly give you a freight quote for this item.
