defenitally not a shark. id go for it. is it the whole setup, like liverock and all or is it just tank, filter, skimmer, lights, ect. if it actually comes with liverock, that would be stupid of you not to get it.

not sure about the live rock but if not im going to go with a non-reef tank i.e small triggers, lions, eels, and hopefully if i can find one a marbled catshark as they only get 24'' and will tolerate these other fish.

how can a 160g tank be a nano reef plus lions get big sharks are out of the question i mean who can tell you what to put in there but it will only be your loss do allot of reading before you get into it

a banded sand shark can max at 24'' and would be fine i have been told.
some lion fish dont get over 8'' so im sure i could get somthing in there.

do you know the subject in question or just adding your thoughts.

you CANT hold a shark in that tank. 24" is still too big for a 24" wide tank. and from what ive heard, if youre just in it to see the shark eat things and crap because of its rep. and all, expect to be dissapointed, coral banded and bamboo sharks are p*ssy nurse shark like catfish sharks.

i agree with carisma your talking about a shark that has the potential to reach 24 inches whats teh likelyhood that its going to happen in a home aquaria i am also with him on the whole beauty of the fish aspect if he wanted killers there are much better fish to get than bottom dwelling sharks
