Bala Shark

Bala Shark

The term "shark" is applied to many unrelated fish with a similar body shape. Although this species is called a Bala Shark, it is actually a type of minnow. These hardy and curious fish add personality and character to an aquarium. The Bala Shark is distinct in its appearance with a shiny silver body and yellow and black dorsal and caudal fins. This particular shark does best in groups of three or more sharks in a planted tank with driftwood and rocks. As this species is known to jump, a tight fitting lid is highly recommended. A tank with plenty of horizontal swimming space is also a must.
