Hello,

It sounds like a Red Tail Shark but without a photo, I cannot say for certain.

My fish species has scales all over body, and the colour of the red faded a bit(from original) it moves like robot and the tail is smaller.

If they have pink tails, they look like Chalceus macrolepidotus.
But maybe it's something else. hampalong.

They look more like C. erythrurus to me, the yellow finned Chalceus. Beautiful fish, adults have red tail, orange dorsal and anal, yellow ventral fins. Grow to about 10".
