    Hi!

    Im just wondering, which type of sharks will be best to keep on 3 000 liters aqua? I want to start with 3000 liters and want to pick a shark, but have no experience with them.

    Thanks

    Your best choice would be to get experience in marine aquaria first and see if its something you want to do. Many people start and realize its a lot more work than they thought.

    agree, plus a shark needs a circular tank so they don't bang up their nose...sharks love to swim in circles and will constantly run into the tank walls if the edges aren't rounded

    +1 to both. Get some experience under your belt before you try one of these animals.

    Or better yet, leave the sharks in the ocean where they really belong and can thrive.

    Totally. There's plenty of great things in this hobby that will easily adapt to an aquarium. Sharks aren't one of them.
