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 .

      My wife just ordered me 2x Beamswork 48" led's for my 220 as a B-day present. Chris (paulbearer) built me a beautiful canopy (I kind of helped). The only thing keeping me from putting it on was the lighting. I currently have 3x 24" t8 fixtures. These fixtures only have 18" bulbs, So I am looking forward to having a tank with good lighting for once. When the lights get here I plan to do a full review and include setup and instal pics so stay tuned.

      Just out of curiosity anyone who actually owns these, how long is the power cord?

      I have a single 36" beamworks, its not quite bright enough in my 125 and slightly yellow in color. I do like it though, the 2x is the way to go.

      Small update: total was $137.80 with free shipping for 2x48" led strips. Got a order confirmation email, but no shipping info yet. It said 6-8 days for shipping. So hopefully by next friday.

      Update: I ordered the lights wednesday night, the order was processed thursday, the lights shipped out friday, and they show tomorrow as a delivery date. So their free 6-8 day delivery turns out to be a free 3-4 day delivery. I'm liking these guys already! Stay tuned folks!

      I have them on all my tanks, and I love them. The power cords are not that long, at least for my 500 so I have to use an extra powerstrip to make it work, otherwise for the price, free shipping, etc. its a good buy. So far so issues with them.
