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 recently purchased a 40L from a pet store that went out of business but have run into problems when I decided to run a sump with a gravity overflow. What size piping will I need im new to this type of thing, but not with fish. The hole is an inch and 3/4 and i was just planning on running an elbow up and I already have five feet of 1" clear flexible hosing that fits my pump...

      A 1" bulkhead fits in about a 1 3/4" hole. Search Aquarium bulkhead on googlee and find the size bulkhead that requires a 1 3/4" hole. Buy it. Use an adapter to change to what ever sized pipe you want to run.

      You seem to be new to bulkheads: if it leaks, DON'T SILICONE IT, just reseat it. Also, make sure you get threaded x threaded, you'd probably regret any slip fits in a month, mas o menos.
