Hi Fin Banded Shark is a peaceful, colorful fish that not only bears no relation to the saltwater predator shark, its mouth actually has no teeth. Its only teeth are arranged like a comb located in the throat (pharynx.) Also know as the Asian Sucker, its common name "shark" comes from the exaggerated dorsal fin that, along with its attractive coloration, is one of its most notable features. As a juvenile, it is a brown-pink color with three black, swathing bands running vertically along the body beginning at the snout. The stripes and body colors do blend with age. A true bottom dweller, the Hi Fin Banded Shark tends to be a herbivore, but is considered an omnivore as it may eat smaller snails and crustaceans found in and on the aquarium substrate.
