I have a chinese hi fin banded shark in my koi pond..have had it for approx 5 years….I live in Oakdale ca and the pond is approx 3500 gals…it shares the pond with 2 40″+ channel cats, koi and goldfish….it eats floating koi food by trapping it on the edges…starting doing this about a year ago..(adapting)…it is probably 24 inches long and still has a huge dorsal fin…it is doing very well….I tried about 4 young ones and this is the only one that lived…I believe they are very sensitive to ph when you introduce them….

I have one in my 35 Gallon Tank together w/ 9 Goldfish, 3 Black Knife Ghost and 1 Janitor Fish.

He’s a jolly fish scavanging for algaes at the floor of the tank, functioning same as the Janitor fish (which is most of the time by the sides of the tank)

They all are living well w/ eachother.

The Chinese Hi Fin Banded Shark is very sensitive to the nitrate level of the tank, which is why my tank is highly oxidised.
