Can't see the head real good but looking at the tail and fin colors, I would say that is a Tri-Color shark, commonly called Bala or Silver shark. I have one that is about 7 inches and is the most peaceful fish in my tank.

Are the Bala Sharks school fish?

Yes it is good to keep them in groups of three or more, but they can get up to 16 inches long and need a lot of tank, it is also not good to have sharp objects in there tank, they are a very quick fish and can hurt them selves when startled.
