help - pictue - what kind of fish is this?
I want this fish... saw it in a video clip.
any help appreciated,
Looks like Datnoides microlepis, or the Siamese Tiger Datnoid, to me. These fish get very large (about a foot long, but it's a tall fish as well) and will eat smaller fish. I've only ever seen them housed in very large aquaria.
There are about five datnoids that exist currently. I am sure Gump will check this topic and confirm the exact ID.
Definitely a Datnoides microlepis.
They are very cool fish. His mouth can open up twice as big as it look like though. I had a small puffer that was about half the size of the datmoid and he opened his mouth and vaccumed the puffer up like he was a tiny flake of food. I was not happy with the loss of the puffer but amazed at the size of the mouth.
microlepis is not the siamese tiger, but rather the indonesian tiger
