Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      Here is a short vid of my Polleni. It's one of the best looking fishes I have. Don't let the vid fool ya. She's pretty to herself most of the time. Pretty elegant huh? LOL

      I've got 6 adults (2M, 4F) plus about 300 3 week old fry. The pics and the video are of the pair that spawned. I had already removed the fry, but they were behaving like they were getting ready to spawn again.

      Thanks T-roy. I'd like to send fish to the States. Unfortunately, I'm in Canada, and the expense and paperwork just doesn't make it feasible. US Fish and Wildlife will charge me over $100 just to bring them across the border and to ship them out of Canada, I need export permits that are pricey to obtain. Sorry.
      Jim
