The Albino Rainbow Shark, scientifically known as Epalzeorhynchos frenatum, is a captivating and unique freshwater fish species that adds a touch of elegance to any aquarium. With its striking albino coloration and energetic nature, the Albino Rainbow Shark is a popular choice among aquarists.


The Albino Rainbow Shark features a predominantly pale pink or whitish body with distinctive red eyes, creating a visually stunning contrast. It has a sleek, torpedo-shaped body and a prominent dorsal fin. These sharks can grow up to 6 inches in length, making them a medium-sized fish suitable for larger aquariums.


Known for their territorial behavior, Albino Rainbow Sharks require ample swimming space and plenty of hiding spots within their tank. They are best kept as the sole shark in the aquarium, as they may exhibit aggressive behavior towards other bottom-dwelling fish of a similar appearance or body shape.


Feeding the Albino Rainbow Shark is relatively easy as they are omnivorous. Offer them a balanced diet consisting of high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, and occasional live or frozen foods such as bloodworms or brine shrimp. It's important to ensure they receive enough vegetable matter in their diet to promote optimal health.
