Default weird case

I have a iridescent shark and it lives in this "sunk'n ship" i got for last christmas ( 65 gal tank) and the boats pretty big and it was perfect for the shark but the shark has grown and barely fits but it wont give up the boat and has lost its fins from them scraping the side of the boat

I'd remove it, and give him something bigger. Injuries can lead to big trouble if they get infected. He may not like it but he'll probably adjust...

Just out of curiosity: is there anything in the tank that could be nipping at the fins?

I think Dan meant to ask if there are any fish in the tank that could be nipping at the shark...

Nothing there to cause harm It's probably the decoration. I don't suppose it's fin rot? The tank is probably cycled, as it's been set up for almost a year. Have you cleaned or replaced any filter media, as this can cause water reading problems? What are the readings for Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrates?
