Saltwater Species

Banded Cat Shark

$148.99

 

Size at Maturity: 48”
Suggested Aquarium Size: 160 gallons

Water Type: Saltwater
Taxonomic/Scientific Name: Chiloscyllium punctatum
Difficulty Level: Advanced
Native Habitat: Western Pacific Ocean
Suggested Foods: squid, feeder shrimp, scallops, mussels

Background: Hardy and durable, this animal qualifies as a good “starter shark” for any experienced hobbyist.  Possessing a tan-colored body with black stripes and cat-like barbells around the mouth, it spends a lot of its time swimming around the bottom.  It is recommended that it not be placed with crustaceans as it may tend to eat them.  Also, because of its soft underbelly, it is recommended that it be provided with a soft sandy bed without jagged rocks or hard gravel.  This will protect the animal from cutting or injuring itself as it cruises around.  It is actually quite fun to watch and should provide much viewing pleasure for any hobbyist.
