Gold Datnoid (Datnioides undecimradiatus)

The Gold Datnoid or Datnioides undecimradiatus is a freshwater fish with a rather large head for its body size. This fish is mostly white and yellow with dark stripes. Sometimes it is referred to as the Siamese Tigerfish, the Mekong Tiger Perch and the Thinbar Datnoid. It doesn't have anything on a the Goliath Tigerfish, but this fish is a predator.  You can check out the Gold Datnoid with your own eyes in the video below... 

As you can imagine their striking appearance makes them a favorite among aquarium enthusiasts. Since this fish grows to about 16" in length, you do need a rather large tank, at least 100 gallons will work. They are not the easiest fish to care for, but once acclimated to an aquarium with the following water conditions they will do just fine, 71-78° F, KH 12-18 and pH 7.0-7.5. Adding plenty of hiding spots, rocks and driftwood will keep them happy and healthy. Like many aquarium fish the Gold Datnoid is only aggressive towards its own species. These fish should be fed a carnivorous diet of brine shrimp, bloodworms and other meaty foods. Gold Datnoid fish have been known to live as long as 10 years.
