need to swap some sharks!

Alpro--I manage a small public aquarium, have a 5,000 gal shark tank with following:
2 Black tip sharks, about 3 ft long
1 grey smoothhound
1 bamboo shark
4 horn sharks

All animals are very healthy, but frankly, getting too large for the tank! I'd love to swap one or more for other compatible sharks either younger or just smaller so that all have plenty of space. Tank length is 20' x 4' deep x 6' front to back.
We are located in NE Ohio, but shipping these guys could be problematic for us, since we don't have necessary containers, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks...Barry

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Current Tank Info: mngr of 3 tanks, 8,000 gals total

At 5,000 gallons - for that tank, I am assuming that you are also include the filtration system.

Still the Black tip sharks(I am also assuming these are BTRs) will definitely need a much larger tank. Honestly I would go with a pond or tank which is at least 15,000-20,000 gallons for them.

The Grey Smoothound, horns and bamboo would likely be fine in the current tank.

Bigger is better, especially when it comes to shark tanks.
