Hi Fin Banded Sharks Available Now

To kick the season off right, we have a rather unique and interesting creature for sale. 

live hi fin banded shark

A young Hi Fin Banded Shark with typical striped pattern.

Technically not a real shark, the Hi Fin Banded Shark is a member of the Cyprinidae family.  With a mature size of around 3 feet in length, Hi Fin Banded Sharks are voracious algae eaters.  These sharks are winter hardy for most zones of the US, and can help to keep the sides of any pond clear of algae.

live adult hi fin banded shark

A full grown Hi Fin Banded Shark. As they grow, Hi Fins lose their stripe pattern, maturing into a solid brown fish.

Currently, we have 6 inch Hi Fin Banded Sharks for sale in any quantity.  Sizes, prices and availability will vary throughout the year, contingent on what we are able to import.  Check the Hi Fin Banded Shark page or our Pricelist and Availability for more details.

    What types of fish to put in a pond?I live in southeast Wisconsin and retcleny put in a fairly large pond. Does anybody know what types of fish would be good to put in? Also, since i’m not a fisherman at all, where would I go about getting them?

    Goldfish, koi, and hifin shark are all good. Gold fish are the hardiest and i know koi are pretty hardy too. They can survive as your pond doesn’t freeze solid so the fish will hibernate/stay under the ice.

    So I’m looking for a 6″ Hi Fin, I live in Charlottesville area VA. I am not a dealer, but it seems dumb to order one all the way from the West Coast. Who would you recommend I go through?

    I have a koi pond in Greenville, South Carolina. I am looking to buy 3 or 4 of these hi fins. We have approx. a 15,000 gallon pond, with 30+KOI.
    Do you have these, and how much are they?
