LOL thanks about that one Jim :) Well datnoids are in the family of perch and they come from South east Asia. They live in fresh water. All datnoids reach different sizes. Because there are several species of them.
You have:
NTT thin bar
Indo IT
Ngt- New Guiana Tiger
Widebar pulcher
American tiger
The Indo, ntt, widebar should reach 15-18'' while the others reach 13-18''.
I will post the profiles soon.
NTT, Indo, and Silver are easy to get. While NGT and widebar are very rare and quite expensive

these fish are awesome. i started with a 65 gallon tall with lake tanganyika cichlids until i got my first silver dat. they did not get along so the cichlids had to go back to the lfs. made room four 4 more dats. 3 silver and 1 ntt which does not seem to have acclimated to the group. he stays hidden in the logs and i havent seen him eat yet ( 2weeks). any suggestions. there are still 3 cichlids ( 2 calvus and 1 frontosa) that i cant seem to let go of yet but i am sure as the dats get bigger i will find a nice home for them. i love these dats
