This listing is for one Silver Shark, this is a freshwater fish and not a shark at all, though its form bears a resemblance to the voracious ocean predators.

The Silver Shark has an elongated, torpedo-shaped body and big eyes, presumably adapted to help it find food. Its dorsal fin is triangular and erect, making it resemble a shark. The Silver Shark has an attractive silver colour, slightly darker towards the top and lighter towards the underbelly, with a slightly golden sheen to the sides. The dorsal, caudal, anal, and pelvic fins as well as the tail fin have a white or golden area in the front and central part of the fin. Each of these fins is also edged with a black margin at the rear.

They are great for almost any freshwater aquarium as well.
