IMPORTING THE WIDE BAR DATNOID PDF Print E-mail
After weeks of painstaking planning and coordination, it's finally here! A goliath amongst others, Aquatic Imports Hawaii presents our first importation of a widebar datnoid, also known as a Siamese Tigerfish or “ST". This particular datnoid measures in at a mind blowing 15 inches and you may form an idea how stressful it was for us to have it shipped. However, Aquatic Imports Hawaii was able to successfully ship this behemoth to the Islands for one very eager customer. Here are some photos, courtesy of one of our top customers, Sinister J, to show us how this datnoid made its way here. 18inchwidebarcopy.jpgresize
Here he is upon arrival! We were thrilled to see him alive and active!

Datnoids have huge spines which immensely worried us. Thankfully, only 2 out of 3 bags were punctured!
