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 .

      Also, looking at this a bit more closely, I see that there was controversy over last year's contest over whether or not MS Paint was used. I see that in this years' contest, "photo editing program" is mentioned. Is this open to photoshop, illustrator, etc.? If those are allowed, how will the judges enforce the "Brush Tool" and "Pencil Tool" only portion of the contest? Would the use of layers be allowed? I guess I should have asked sooner! Hope to hear something back by Wednesday.

      Guys guys the deadline for entries will come up soon. :( I wanna play but I want to make sure I do it right. I don't want to get the stink-eye from people who think I've cheated! What is and isn't okay?

      Can we use Photoshop this year? Does it need to be MS Paint only? I see that Neoprodigy mentioned 'your software' but does that mean ANY software?
