The following comment was added by Andreas Iliopoulos in December 2003:
 
The name Datnioides microlepis is not the valid name of the species any more according to BAENSCH Aquarium Atlas. The species belongs to the family COIIDAE (former LOBOTIDAE, "flashers") and first described by Bleeker, 1853. The new and valid name of the species is Coius microlepis.

The following comment was added by Kirk Lieberg in December 2004

This is wrong it should be Coius undecimradiatus. (Datnioides) There is two fish in this family that hasn't had their name switched over yet. Known as North Thailand Tiger = NTT. See http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=6 see also

Datniodes microlepis is a valid name but not for the fish pictured on this page. Now, known as Coius microlepis and will still be referred for a while as Datniodes microlepis, has wider bars and the first bar after the gill plate will connect all the way around the belly of the fish.

American tiger, Coius quadrifasciatus "Silver Tiger"
North Thailand tiger, Datnioides undecimradiatus
Indo (Indonesia), Cambodian, Vietnamese Tiger, Datnioides pulcher
Siamese Tiger, Coius microlepis
New Guinea Tiger, Coius campbelli
