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 .

      I like the big guys. my tanks are: 120gal,480gal.110gal.270gal.240gal.60gal,20gal. I recently got an arapima about 18" long. I'll be looking towards a bigger tank, like about 20'x20'x30"or so deep. I'll keep the tank site page on my favorites list.

      oh man -- I came on here just look up stuff about fish. But after clicking around, I've decided I'm going to have to build my own tank.

      Already starting the new budget.

      Looks Fun!!!!!

      This calculator seems to be specifially for full acrylic aquarium builds, where cemented edges is part of the variables...

      Or, according to this thing, I needed a 4.5 in thick sheet to just serve as a plain freestanding window on my DIY build.
