The red-tailed black shark, also known as the redtail shark and redtail sharkminnow, is a species of freshwater fish in the carp family, Cyprinidae. It is endemic to Thailand and currently critically endangered, but common in aquaria, where it is prized for its deep black body and vivid red or orange tail. 

The Red Tail Shark (Epalzeorhynchos Bicolor) also known as Red Tail Shark Fire Tail, Red Tailed Labeo, and Red Tail Shark Minnow, is a small freshwater fish native to Thailand.

It was found in the clear waters and floodplains in the MeNam Chao Playa basin, however due to excessive poaching it was thought to have become extinct. However, due to the thriving aquarium trade the breed lives on in private collections.

This fish is widely known for its impressive looks; it has a completely black body with a vibrant forked red tail.
