Silver Shark Balantiocheilos melanopterus 5cm
Bala shark or silver shark (Balantiocheilos melanopterus) is a freshwater species belonging to Carp family. The fish can be encountered in waters of South-East Asia and it is threatened with extinction. Itâ€™s quite a popular tank fish due to its likeness to a real shark. However, in fact, bala shark has nothing in common with them.
Bala Sharks originate from Southeast Asia in medium to large-sized rivers, as well as lakes. At one time they were found in Thailand, Borneo, Sumatra, and the Malayan peninsula. However, they have become rare in many areas that they originally inhabited and are believed to be completely extinct in some regions.
