The Coral Cat Shark is considered one of the best sharks for the home aquarium because of it’s 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 but stay away from housing these sharks with Puffers, Triggers or Large Angels. These fish will typically harass or kill the shark.
