Nurse Sharks are commonly found in the shallow waters of the Atlantic Ocean from The United States to Europe and Africa. Nurse Sharks can grow very large, growing up to 14 feet in nature. If you are keeping one of these sharks, you will need a very serious setup and a very large aquarium to house this shark properly. Nurse Sharks are carnivores and should be fed a steady diet with plenty of feeder fish and meaty foods for best possible health. Nurse Sharks are aggressive and should not be kept with less dominant fish and should not be kept in a reef aquarium.
