    Species care sheet/profile

    Datnioides pulcher
    Family: Datnioididae.
    Order: Perciformes (perch-like).
    Class: Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes).
    Common name: Siamese Tiger, Cambodian Tiger, Widebar Tiger, Widebar Datnoid, ST/CT.
    Max. size: 24 inches/60 cm. D pulcher are slow growing and rarely seen above 18 inches/45 cm in the aquarium.
    Environment: Freshwater.
    Distribution: Asia, Mekong and Chao Phraya basins.
    Temperament: Can be aggressive toward others of the same species, they will usually be OK with other large fish, although this is not always the case.
    Species info: Distinguishable by its regular colour pattern consisting of 4 or 5 regular and broad bars on body; bar 1 from nape through opercle onto thoracic region and across ventral surface of the body; bar 2 from base of dorsal spines 2-5 to slightly in front of anal fin origin; bar 3 starts at base of dorsal spine 9 to base of dorsal ray 2, and ends at base of anal rays 2-6; bar 4 on posterior half of caudal peduncle. (Ref. Fishbase.org)

    Keeping Datnioides Pulcher in the aquarium.
    Feeding info: Feeding D pulcher when small and newly introduced to the aquarium can be a challenge and live foods may only be taken. Feeding habits can be changed, and with perseverance foods like prawn, whitebait (silversides), beef heart, earthworms and even pellets can be accepted and a varied diet is always best.
    Water info: A temperature range of 24-28C (75-82F) and a pH between 6.5-7.5 will suffice. A large amount of filtration and decent water change schedule is a must with these fish as they prefer good water quality.
    Tank size: A large tank with plenty open swimming space is required for D pulcher, although as this fish grows slowly a smaller tank can be used as a grow out. As these fish grow large a 6x2x2 tank is recommended but bigger is always better.

    Datnioides Microlepis
    Family: Datnioididae.
    Order: Perciformes (perch-like).
    Class: Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes).
    Common name:Indo Datnoid, Indo Tiger, IT.
    Max. size: 18 inches/45 cm. D microlepis are slow growing and rarely seen at 18 inches/45 cm in the aquarium, although do grow to this size in the wild.
    Environment: Freshwater.
    Distribution: Indonesia, plus the Kapuas basin in western Borneo and Musi basin in Sumatra.
    Temperament: Can be aggressive toward others of the same species, they will usually be OK with other large fish, although this is not always the case.
    Species info: This species typically has 7 or 8 bars, including a curved bar through eye, three or four body bars (depending on location), and three tail stripes or bars. The first body bar typically extends through the operculum and crosses the ventral surface. Specimens from Sumatra generally have three body bars, all of which extend across the ventral surface, while specimens from Borneo generally have four body bars, which also cross the ventral surface. Partial bars are almost invariably absent. Branched dorsal rays 14-18; branched anal rays 9-11, usually 10. (Ref. Fishbase.org), (adapted by Jesse aka itchyophile)

    Common name: Silver Datnoid/Tiger, American Tiger, AT

    Environment: Freshwater.
    Distribution: Asia, India to Indonesia and New Guinea.
    Temperament: Can be aggressive toward others of the same species, they will usually be OK with other large fish, although this is not always the case.

Doral spines (total): 12 - 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13 - 14; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 – 9. Pre-dorsal profile strongly concave; Anal fin branched rays 9; colour pattern highly variable, Frank Shafer wrote in the 2005 Aqualog book that the population from the Indian subcontinent is a dull grey-black in base colour, while the southeast Asian population (presumably both mainland and New Guinea populations) have a white/silver background. This species has up to 7 full vertical bars on body, sometimes with 1 to 4 partial bars between full bars (Ref. Fishbase.org), (Frank Schafer. Aqualog) (adapted by Jesse aka itchyophile and myself)
