Silver Shark Species

We have 3 Silver Sharks, believed to be "Balatiocheilus melanopterus", I am looking for details on this fish. I am unable to find a image to confirm its true latin name. I am interested in anyone's experience in its feeding, breeding and water quality requirements and to know more about it. Despite various search engines through the aquatic pages I am un able to find more info.

I have several good books at home but alas out of luck. Can anyone help???
