They are both really pretty! I would say it is just a dark variation of a black banded but if it starts growing a large spot I would assume an Epaulette but not till then.

The first Shark - is a juvenile Brown banded Bamboo (Chiloscyllium punctatum). As an average adult (about 40-42") it will need a bare minimum tank or pond of 50 sq. feet, and about 750 gallons. A tank or pond with a footprint of 75-80 sq. feet with a tank or pond volume of 1,500 gallons would highly suggested.

The second shark - is a juvenile Coral Catshark (Atelomycterus marmoratus). They average about 24" as adults, and max out at about 28". So they stay much smaller. So it is very possible to keep these sharks is a 300 gallon tank or pond - if the tank or pond has enough floor space (at least 16-20 sq. feet, IMO).
