    Dear Hobbyist,

    I am going to touch on a long debated and controversial topic: The elusive Datniodes Pulcher or more commonly known as the Siamese Tiger or ST for short.


    The ST is a large (more then 24" ),predatory,long lived fish (over 20 years) which originates from the Chao Phraya River basin in Thailand.They are found in both fresh and brakish waters.

    This fish is believed to be extinct in the wild due to overfishing over the years for both consumption and the aquarium trade.

    The Thai Government has taken measures to conserve this beautiful fish, banning the export of this fish and Department of Fisheries in Thailand(DOF) has a captive breeding program, however there is not much success as to date.
