Great White Shark aka Carcharodon Carcharias


Also known as Jaws, White Death.

Origin: All Oceans
Temperature: Prefers temperate costal areas
PH: Doesn't care
Maximum Size: 25 feet about 7,000 lbs.
Temperment: Predatory man eating shark. Very friendly after feeding though.

A fish no serious keeper should be without. The proper size tank/pool is essential as they do not like to be too confined and are well know to bite the hand off that feeds them!

Water conditions are important as well as removal of any electrical fields that will disturb their delicate senses.

Feeding can be costly unless you live in an areas where people like to hop your fence during the day to swim in your pool. A good sized teenager will satisfy a Great White for up to two months. If you plan on using the pool it is best to feed heavily about a week before swimming season.
