The Chinese high fin banded shark (Myxocyprinus asiaticus) is a popular freshwater aquarium fish[1] that belongs to the Catostomidae family. Young Chinese high fin banded sharks normally possess brown bodies bearing three dark-colored slanting bands. During the breeding season, adult males are distinguished from adult females by their red coloration. Adult females are of dark purple color with a broad and vertical reddish area along the body. Juveniles of the Chinese high fin banded sharks are also characterized by high and triangular dorsal finnage that extends up to the rear of the anal fin. The adult appearance is far less distinctive, as they are elongate in shape without the very high dorsal fin. The thick and fleshy lips bear small papillae without barbels. They have a single row of pharyngeal teeth that have comb-like arrangements.

If your fish arrives dead: We will require a photo of the Koi so do not dispose of it. However distasteful it may be for you to do this, you will need to cut the tail section off of the Koi and lay it on the ground with the remainder of the Koi for the picture.  
It is your responsibility to put the koi in water that is good for the health of fish. Do not put fish into a pond without making sure that the water has been treated with a water conditioner and tested for ammonia levels and nitrates. The koi you receive has lived a long time already, and if it dies in your pond quite honestly there is something wrong with your water.
