Balantiocheilos melanopterus (Silver Shark)
A peaceful fish which is commonly available. They are attractive fish, but beware they do get large and can exceed 30cm in size. They will therefore need an adequately sized aquarium.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
There are no reports of these fish having been bred in aquarium conditions. The reason is likley to be the fact that a very large tank will be required to provide adequate breeding conditions. It is difficult to sex these fish, apart from the usual characteristic of the females being more rounded when they are mature and in breeding condition.
