The Silver-tipped Shark Ariopsis seemanni (They are widespread along the Eastern Pacific, found in Pacific-draining rivers and estuaries from the southern Gulf of California to northern Peru. Other common names they are known by are Colombian S Catfish, Shark Catfish, and White Tip Shark Catfish. Along with other members of the Ariidae family 

They are listed on the UCN Red List of Endangered species as Least Concern (LC) because this species has a wide distribution with no major threats or indications of a declining population. It is common in many parts of its range and occurs in a wide range of habitats.

The Silver-Tipped shark is moderately difficult to care for and so is not recommended for beginners. Although small juveniles, usually under 4 inches in length, are sold as freshwater fish, as this fish matures it will need more brackish conditions (higher salinity), up to full saltwater.

They are suggested for an intermediate fish keeper because of the required brackish conditions, their adult size, and the need for companions. A 75 gallon aquarium is large enough for one specimen, but without the company of their own kind, the Colombian Shark Catfish will act nervous and somewhat neurotic. A school of 3 or more of these fish is needed which will require at least a 100 gallon aquarium. These are a peaceful fish but are predatory. As they grow smaller tankmates will become food.
