    Good point...

    I would base it on personal preference, personality, looks, enjoyment, awe factor..... is this something you can look at for the next 10-20 years?

    I personally like the brownbanded bamboo shark because it looks closest to the big sharks once it is an adult

    The epaulette shark has personality but 4x time the price. There is a baby at my LFS for $400... I can buy 4 of the other ones for the same price lol

    I'd get the one with the personality. It's beautiful and it will be a relatively small investment over 20+ years

    i love the Epaulette Shark's, i would get these, but go with persoanlity and some for looks, becuase having a tank with like spotted stingrays that just burry themselves is not very interesting. lol

    I thought the Epaulette Shark looked the best but as others stated Id base my purchase more on personality then looks.

    Idk anything about sharks besides what I learn on shark week lol. But I did spend a few minutes watching them on youtube and its an easy vote for me.

    The Bamboo shark is certainly more striking, and would impress people because it looks more like you have a straight up shark:

    But the Epaulette looks like it has allot more personality and is quite frankly adorable:

    I'd go with the Epaulette for sure.

    I would go with the epaulette not only for looks but they also seem to be one of the easier species of shark to keep in aquaria.
