Hi and welcome to TFK.

I get the feeling you like sharks.
I don't think there are saltwater sharks that would do well in a pond.(I have never heard of a saltwater pond)

Fresh water sharks are a other story.

Yes I know that
Can we keep a bull shark? The pond is circular and is 60 feet from one end to another. Yes, I have low fence around it. (I live in the UK)

Chances of you getting a Permit to even import a shark like that are zero unless you are a registered aquarium. The amount of checks required from DEFRA and the cost are a lot.

If you are looking for something for a pond then Koi would be much better.

Well, Cant we buy them anywhere in the UK?
Not to be rude, but what do you mean 'registered aquarium'? I might become one! I dont mind checks and I tink I can afford them(I know how much it costs). And just to clarify my pond is 20 feet deep not 10 feet.

The baby bull will become a adult.

That is a big pond are there any other fish in the pond?

I'd rather get chinese hi fin sharks,koi and/or goldfish even a sturgeon or two.

I am very sorry for not telling you before but my perants have got a very big property which has a pond which is 500 feet from one side to another! Unfortunatly for them it was in the countryside and the nearest town was 20 kilometers from their house and my house is 3 kilometers from the nearest town. So my perants asked me to own their property and them to own my property.And of cours I said yes! So I now own a enormus pond.

In South Africa that is called a dam.

I live 15kilometers from Tzaneen(my town) and we have 4 dams, 2 small with no fish so far
and 2 big ones with native fish. The biggest one is maybe 12meters deep and 300wide and probably 1 kilometer longm

Bull sharks are river sharks and won't live long in a dam(pond)

They are a native shark in SA and some hugh ones are caught each year.

Is there any chance of a picture of you dam(pond)?
