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 .

      Quick summary for the lazy clickers . . . :ROFL:

      A price and location MUST be posted, along with whether or not shipping is available, or the item is for local sale only. If there is no price it will be closed.

      To aid in clarifying the nature of threads, a prefix MUST precede the subject of the thread.

      Prefix explanation : WTB (want to buy), FS (for sale), FT (for trade), FREE

      Format : Prefix - Item/Fish - Location(City and State/Province) - Method of Transport (shipping or pick up)

      Example : FS - Arowana - York, PA - Pick-up only

      Example : FT - Polypterus endlicheri - York, PA - shipping or pick-up

      Once all listed items are sold, the thread author MUST post that all has been sold, so that the thread can be subsequently closed.

      Time Limit :
      All buy/sell threads will automatic closed after 21 days.

      Bumps / Take To Top :
      Allowed to be done by the OP 24 hours after last post or bump.

      I wonder why people view streamlining the buy and sell section as something so bad?

      Geez, nothing wrong with some oraganization. Its probably the same people who dont read and get their threads closed...lol

      I agree. It was kind of annoying to have to click through every add that interest me, just to find out that it's on the other side of the world w/o shipping. I understand if it's not possible, but it would be alot easier to just have designated boxes for location and shipping when posting a thread. There wouldn't have to be as much patroling of the threads by mods, and also no complaints about in-equality.
