This category is for those freshwater fish that are often called 'Sharks' by the Aquarium trade. Please note that they are not even closely related to that famous group of fish that hunt animals in the seas around the World.

They are called 'Sharks' because they have a torpedo shaped body with a high dorsal fin which could be said to look like the dorsal fin of true Sharks.

All of these fish are either Cyprinids or Catfish.

The trade probably sells more of this animal by making this pseudo association.
