The red-tailed black shark is a freshwater fish in the carp family, Cyprinidae. Its scientific name is Epalzeorhynchos bicolor. It is not actually a shark, just so-called in its popular name.

It is endemic to Thailand. It is critically endangered.[1] It is common in aquariums, where its deep black body and vivid red or orange tail are prized. The red-tailed black sharks seen in aquariums today are all bred in captivity.[2]

It is omnivorous.[3]
