    seriously....its called GOOGLE

    Please use it
    Sharks

    They're listed as 'expert only' so if you're not capable of doing some baseline research, you aren't in this category

    The next question...were you planning on starting this in your 20 gallon?
    Or the 125?
    Or the 220?

    Yeah.....bigger is always best, but minimum for a banded is 180, so you should be good.

    I'm not a shark person, but from what I've read, they need swimming space. So putting rocks might cause avalanches if they knock it down with their tails. But I'm sure if you glue the rocks together or attach them together with pvc, it might be ok. But again, I really have no experience with sharks :)
