Curator's Note
Sharks should not be exposed to copper based medications as this will cause illness. Like all sharks, this one has the possibility of inflicting a very painful bite, especially when provoked. Care should be taken when cleaning the display tank and feeding. Sharks tend to act aggressively toward other fish, particularly smaller ones. Be sure to house with larger, aggressive species.


The Epaulette Shark is considered one of the best sharks for the home aquarium because of it’s smaller size compared to many other sharks. They prefer reefs and tide pools and are frequently found perching near Staghorn acropora. The Epaulette shark prefers soft sandy bottoms in which to dig in and will require rock structure to be secure. Rockwork that has caves and ledges will prove to be favorite spots for the Epaulette shark.


Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. With time, Rays will usually learn to eat larger sinking pellet foods.
