Thanks for the heads up but after 40 years of fish keeping I very familiar
with iridescent sharks. usually they get quite large and end up dashing
themselves against the sides on their tank and dying. This one did not get large for
some reason. It even has it's eyes in perfect shape. Most big ones have damaged
their eyes by the time they get big.
