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 bought a beautiful pair of S. elegans and I knew that they were vegetarians and that their diet consisted of algae, so I let algae grow in their tank for months, tons of it, even blue-green algae, which they like. The tank was very well established. They went through the algae in roughly three weeks, then they stopped eating altogether. I bought algae tabs i transferred algae from other tanks and nothing. The female died yesterday:cry: and I frantically moved the now alone male to a tank with more algae. I don't know what Ill do after that. Long story short I just don't see this species doing well in an aquarium setting, they're just to demanding, at least for me! At least I can say that I tried.

      I have 12 of them and I think they're great for an aquarium. I keep them with bb gobys, scarled badis, clown killi and bumphead gobys. I don't think they're bad for an aquarium at all. They have awesome little personalities and readily scavenge on anything, not just algae.

      Really? Mine just ate and ate and ate for a few weeks until it was all gone. I tried everything after that, frozen bllodworms, mysis shrimp, daphnia, live daphnia. algae tabs, i tried introducing algae. nothing. I guess it depends on the individual fish!

      blue green algae can release toxins to the water
