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 .

      they usually go from 1-4" pretty quickly and slow down after that. it also depends on tank size, clean water and diet. one of my CLs ive had for 2 years. bought it at 1" and now its 4"

      I agree, after 4" they slow down considerably, but a good varied diet helps.

      I highly recommend mussels on the half shell, that is loach power food. I also like to cut open large smelt and extract the eggs. That's a great loach food too. I also feed:

      Brine Shrimp, Krill, Bloodworms, Mysis, Veggies, Omega one flakes, Sinking Carnivore, Massivore, Algae tabs, shrimp pellets, etc.
