Red tailed black sharks rediscovered in the wild

It seems that one of my favorite fish the red tailed black shark which was until recently thought extinct in the wild has been rediscovered.  While its still too early to say its a full recovery of population the fact they’ve been observed at all is amazing.

You can go read the article over on practical fish keeping which also has a linked PDF report from the scientists who have observed the fish.

  1. Did I read right, the red tail shark is near extinction. Why are they still selling them ?

    1. I believe though not certain but all the ones we buy in the lfs’s are tank bread/farmed though no doubt in some countries they’re still wild caught

Get in touch I'd love to hear from you
