    I'm not a shark expert (or close) but I would suggest trying different foods. He may have something against squid, so you could try clams, mussels, shrimp, etc...another thing is to try to jig it around like it's live food, I've heard that works with some other really finnicky fish like butterflies and mandarins. (I know, that's not even comparing apples to another fruit, but it may give you something to try...)

    He is awesome! But they are very needy and demanding.

    If I won the lottery, I think a great white and hammerhead tank would find its way into my house.

    Worst thing to hear from Kyle? "Would you like to come over for dinner?"

    It would be a great big one. 100' long, 20' wide and 15' deep. It would be an "L" shape and the short leg would be 30'x20'x15' deep.
