How about a new fish this year? We always get Koi, Koi, Koi. What else? We did Orfes, etc., but we’ve got one now I’m going to call the “Buffalo Fish” (like wings, beef on weck sandwich ☺). It’s the Chinese High-Fin Banded Shark (Myxocyprinus asiaticus).

It comes from the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. They like cold water and stretches of warm weather, but are happiest kept cool. They have a peaceful temperament, sometimes exhibit a playful swimming manner, and are known to change color depending on their mood. The sharks are omnivorous bottom dwellers that can be fed dried, live or frozen food (including brine shrimp, vegetables and blood worms).

Come in and take a look. These are sweet, big sharks! The fish can grow to over a yard, but they grow slower than Koi. They will live a long time. High-Fin Banded Sharks are a great addition to your customer’s pond. So you can now play the theme music from “Jaws” this summer by the Pond

  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had been doing a little
    homework on this. And he in fact bought me lunch because I stumbled upon it for
    him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this topic here on your internet site.
