The Iridescent Shark Pangasianodon hypophthalmus (previously Pangasius hypophthalmus) is a very active catfish. They are schooling fish, and a group of these swimmers makes a delightful display. The name is derived from its juvenile coloring, a silvery iridescence with a couple dark stripes, and a body shape resembling that of a shark. As they reach their adult size, which can be up to a whooping 4 feet (130 cm) in length in the wild, their coloring becomes a uniform darker gray, often without the striping.

Approximate size 5cm
