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 snagged a 55g for $50 with the idea for my new birthday present, a tank head board in the bed room! (hay, a fish head )'> fish head board):D

      First the sales pitch to the wife. drawings and romancing the stand of how nice an 8 foot stand would look holding her alarm clock!
      second, the cost... practically nothing. I will use the scrap wood from the redecoration project of our sons room.
      third, we need to do our bedroom---get rid of of the sterile white walls.
      SOLD!!!!!

      Man !!! what a great idea !!! Excellent!! Built in reading/night light and all.
      Got to try this out here at the home, though I'd opt for a 125 without the side cabinets.
      My wife's a damn bedhog, so I need the extra width. :D :D :D
      I'm in.

      Damn does that alarm clock look good!:ROFL:
      I took the fluval 404 that was running a 36g tank, (long story.....found on different thread.) put in door on the left which is totally walled with acustic foam. It is dead quiet! Even better than I theorized in the sales pitch. You can't hear it even if you listen for it!

      Right now the walls and the stand are just primer. next is the sides and hood. than paint. We are debating colors.
      Right now the only fish in the tank are my wives favorites the geo and frontosa. (part of the sales pitch agreement)
