Golden Shark

The golden shark is up there with tin foil barbs and pacus as a schooling fish that gets enormous. These beautiful fast swimmers are colorful and very hardy, but will out grow a medium fish tank within a year. Golden sharks will eat flake and pellets and will grow from the shipping size of about three inches to two feet. In fact these fish are a delicacy in Thailand - but what you do with a two foot fish is your business.

If you want a schooling fish and want to have a big fish tank, these are the ones.
