bala sharks

These cool fish are sharks and are called as Bala Shark, Silver Shark, Tri Color, Shark Minnow, Hangus, Silver Bala etc. These need a lot of space to swim and are very active. I have a pair of these.

The Bala shark, Balantiocheilos melanopterus, also known as the tricolor shark, silver shark, or shark minnow, is a fish species of the family Cyprinidae, and has long been considered the sole member of the genus Balantiocheilos. This species is not a true shark, but is commonly called a “shark” because of its torpedo-shaped body and large fins.
