Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      I've been looking for this picture. Ming posted it some time ago. If you blow up the picture, you can see the text. In the upper left corner of the left page is Datnioides quadrifasciatus (now D. polota)/silver datnoid, particularly the southeast Asian mainland population. In the upper right corner of the left page is D. undecimradiatus/ thinbar datnoid or NTT (North Thailand tiger). In the lower left corner of the left page is D. microlepis / Indonesian datnoid or IT (Indo. tiger), specifically the Sumatra population/variant. In the lower right corner of the left page is the Borneo population/variant of D. microlepis. The highest fish on the right page is intended to depict the Chao Phraya basin population of D. pulcher/widebar datnoid, also known as the Siamese tiger (ST). The fish just below it is intended to be the Mekong basin population of D. pulcher, also known as Cambodian tiger (CT). The fish in the lower left corner of the right page is D. quadrifasciatus, specifically the population from the island of New Guinea, including both the Irian Jaya (Indonesian) side and the Papua New Guinea side. The fish in the lower right corner of the right page is D. campbelli/New Guinea datnoid, aka NGT. Hope this helps. :)

      I didn't translate, I only interpreted based on my knowledge of Datnioides gleaned through years of fish foruming. I can't read that "chicken scrabble." :confused: :D
