This listing is for one Rainbow Shark, the Rainbow Shark is a tropical freshwater cyprinid that is known for their territorial nature and bright vibrant red fins.  They were given the affectionate common name of Rainbow Shark, due to their upright dorsal fin which gives them the appearance of a shark. 

If you do intend to keep Rainbow Sharks you should make sure your aquarium has plenty of hiding places for them as this helps to reduce their territorial behavior. They are active swimmers and tend to spend most of their time dwelling at the bottom of the tank. Due to them being bottom-dwellers, they are known as aquarium cleaners as they will eat the algae growing on the bottom of the tank.
