I am new to the forum. Looks like there is a ton of great information on here.
I live in Southern Ontario (Canada) and I have been trying to locate somewhere where I can purchase a Chinese High Fin Banded Shark for my pond. It's about 1500 gallons and I think the High Fin would make a great addition but I can't seem to locate one. There are a number of sites online where they can be purchased but all of the ones I've found thus far are in the US and don't ship to Canada.
If anyone here can provide any idea of where I might be able to get one in Ontario, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks.

I'd suggest you read up as I found the hi-fin shark can 'tolerate' water temps as low as 40 deg F. I doubt your pond would stay warmer than that in Canada, unless you plan on heating it.

Sorry can't help with locating the fish, though.

I have done a bit of homework, and, as you say, that was about the minimum temperature that was suggested was safe for these fish. My pond is heated in the winter, and I have a large aquarium inside for any of the fish that require a "winter home" :)
Thanks
