Our Pictures

This website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale. Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it grows and matures.

Click here to read more about our fish.

We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.

The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

these Siamese tiger fish, yellow datnoid, at AquariumFish.net, a retail Tropical Fish supplier.   Here are two Black Barred Siamese Tiger Fish just like the Tiger Fish for sale in our facility.
   
These 5" Black Barred Tiger Fish, Datnioides microlepis, were sparring and quarreling with each other, as Tiger Fish often do, when this picture was taken.
   
Species
There are a total of five species. Three of them, Microlepis, Undecimradiatus, and Pulcher are almost always found living in freshwater. The other two, Campbelli and Polota, are usually found living in brackish water.
   

Comments
Tiger Dat Fish will quarrel and spar with each other and will eat any fish that can be swallowed, but Tiger Dat Fish do not bother other species of fish that are too big to swallow. Tiger Dat Fish grow fast to large sizes and eventually require very large aquariums.

For many years the word Datnoid has been commonly used to describe this fish. As far as we know, this is incorrect, and Datnoid is probably just a very common misspelling of Datnioides, which is the correct way to spell the name of the genus of this fish.

 
picture of a Black and White Tiger Fish. Click on the picture to see a bigger image.   Here is a Black and White Tiger Fish, Datnioides polota, which was formerly called Datnioides quadrifasciatus. Picture take in our facility.
 

Appropriate Home
An aquarium with at least 50-gallons of water, and eventually a much larger aquarium with an exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4-inch of gravel, and an aquarium heater adjusted to keep the water between 78 and 82-degrees F.

The Polota and Campbelli do better with some marine salt mix in the water. About 1 to 2-tablespoons of marine salt mix should raise the salinity to about 1.005, which is about right for these species.

The other Tiger Fish do fine without aquarium salt in their water. Click here for more about Aquarium Salt. Click here for more about warm water aquariums.

   

Recommended Diet
Tiger Fish are piscivors that eat feeder fish such as 2" long common goldfish. 
When Tiger Fish are small, they'll eat Guppies, Live Black Worms, and Ghost Shrimp.

Click here for information about Ghost Shrimp, and click here for information about Live Black Worms. Incidentally, we do not sell or ship Live Black Worms.  Click here for more information about feeding fish.

   

Compatibility
Tiger Fish are best kept with other fish that are too large to be swallowed. Tiger Dat Fish will quarrel with each other, so they are best kept one Tiger to an aquarium, unless the aquarium is very large.

Tiger Dat Fish are often seen in the same aquarium with large Oscars, large Pacus, large Tinfoil Barbs, Large Bala Sharks, and large Clown Knifefish.

Tiger Dat Fish can also be kept with catfish that are too large and spiny to be eaten. For example, White Tip Shark Cats, Pictus Catfish, and Synodontis Catfish. Click here to read more about several other groups of compatible fish.

   

Size and Lifespan
Tiger Dat Fish grow slowly to large sizes that are listed in the table above on this page. They live for 10-years and sometimes longer.
