Hi All - have been following a thread on another forum where the question of stunting has been raised with regards to various species of shark. Seems to be some question over whether or not cartilaginous fish stunt in the same way as other fish - would be interested in hearing the opinions of anyone on here as I've taken on several goldies with stunting problems so I'm always interested in finding out more about it and how it affects other species /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Do cartiliginous fish grow regardless of size of environment (assuming diet and water quality etc. are ok)?

Cheers, S /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

There was an article in a PFK magazine about keeping sharks in home aquaria. It was written a long time ago. Possibly as long ago as 20 years. I do clearly remember that the author stated that cartilaginous fish will continue to grow regardless of the size of their tank. But I cannot remember who wrote it. I quick google shows no results. It might be hard to find any definitive information unless you contact experienced shark keepers at public aquaria? Sorry I can't be any more help.
