Unfortunately, the answers to your questions drastically differ depending on the species of Shark. Fortunately or unfortunately there are many that are available for home aquaria.

The easiest answer to your questions is temperature. Look of the range of your shark at fishbase.org then go to http://www.sea-temperature.com/ and find out the temperature that your shark comes from. Very easy.

As for tank size, one considers foot print and not gallons when dealing with both benthic and ORV sharks. It also depends on shape. Round or oval is better than square or rectangular with the one exception being the eppies where it doesn't really matter.

What species are you considering?
