 Has  anyone  seen  any  of  the  species  of  Datnoids  available  for  sale  in  India?  (and  in  Bombay)?
 
 If  yes,  can  you  tell  us  the  location?  (and  if  possible  PM  me  the  price?)

 D.  pulcher  STs  are  endangered  species  and  now  banned  from  ornamental  fish  trading.
 However  you  can  get  its  3-4  bar  cousins  microlepis  (ITs)  &  Silvers  (ATs)  rarely  in  Mumbai.
 
 You  can  check  with  Shahzad  of  Piceas,  Had  bought  couple  fork-bar  ITs  from  him  long  back  which  were  killed  by  my  HBRTG.

 I  have  seen  Siamese  Tigerfish  (Datnioides  microlepis)   for  sale  in  Pune.  
 They  are  available  now  days,  about  2inch  in  size.

 Can  you  give  me  address  or  directions  to  "Aquakingdom"  in  Mulund?
 
 I  will  also  check  with  Pisces  (Crawford),  but  that  is  a  very  long  trip  for  me.  (I  wonder  if  he'll  help  me  over  the  phone.)
 
 Are  these  exclusively  imported  or  are  they  bred  there  in  India?  
 
 Regards,
 Sid

 Guess  they  are  imported  from  the  stock  bred  in  east  asian  countries,  very  cheaply  available  in  that  part  of  the  world.
 Very  slow  growers  though,  it'd  be  good  if  you  keep  them  in  a  bunch  of  5-6  as  there  will  always  be  aggression  amongst  them.
 Bullied  ones  will  go  unstable  for  weeks/months,  later  you  can  keep  the  most  active/stable  ones  &  discard  the  rest.
 More  importantly,  you  will  need  to  find  a  size  which  will  not  fit  your  Arowana's  mouth  (though  Silvers  are  mild  than  others).

 Hi  Clive,
 
 You  can  check  its  availability  with  Piceas  at  Crawford  Mkt.  as  said  earlier.
 Last  year  spotted  them  at  Pooja  Aquarium  in  Borivali  also.

 Got  a  couple  of  American  Tigers  from  a  source  in  Hyderabad  and  had  them  shipped  over  to  Kerala.
 
 STs  are  rare  and  almost  impossible  to  find.  But  they  remain  the  ultimate  that!
