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 .

      My dad wants to switch his 55 gallon saltwater aquarium over to freshwater, so he's having me sell off the livestock, live rock, and equipment.

      I've included links to the products' pages on various retailers' websites in order to give you a better idea as to what you're looking at.

      Equipment:
      • Coralife Lunar Aqualight HO T5 Aquarium Light Fixture (48")-- $180
        • In use for slightly over a year
        • Has two daylight bulbs, two actinic bulbs, and four blue moonlight LEDs
        • The one support leg is busted (works fine otherwise)
        • Personally, I would dismantle it and remount it inside a custom canopy; that's what I plan on doing if it doesn't sell
      • AquaC Remora Protein Skimmer w/ Drain Fitting + Maxi-Jet 1200-- $110
        • In use for slightly over a year
        • Rated for up to 75 gallons
        • Drain fitting is convenient since you don't need to empty the collection cup (all the gunk goes to a collection container of your choice)
        • Comes with tubing for drain fitting
      • Eshopps PF-1000 Overflow Box-- $60
        • In use for less than three months
        • Rated for 900 gph
        • Comes with tubing, fitting(s), and clamp(s)
      • Lifegard Aquatics Quite One Pro Aquarium Pump 3000-- $50
        • In use for less than three months
        • Rated for 819 gph @ 0 ft head, ~760 gph @ 2' of head, ~680 gph @ 4' of head, & ~570 gph @ 6' of head
        • Comes with tubing, fitting(s), and clamp(s)

      Live stock & live rock:
      • 45 lbs. of live rock-- $70
        • Has some nice purple & white coralline algae; have been dosing Purple Up & strontium
      • Snowflake eel (~20")-- $25
        • Feeding on frozen squid, scallops, krill, and octopus
      • Undulate trigger (~6")-- $10
        • Feeding on frozen squid, scallops, krill, and octopus
        • Has not shown any aggression; seems to be at the bottom of the hierarchy
      • 3x Assorted Damselfishes (~1")-- $5 for all three
        • Three Stripe, Two Stripe, and Yellowtail
        • Feeding on small pellets
      • 3x Fighting Conch (~3")-- $6 a piece or all three for $15
        • Feeding on detritus and leftover pellets
      • 3x Lighting Whelk (2x 3" & 1x 6")-- $10 a piece for the little ones, $20 for the big one, and $35 for all three
        • Feeding on detritus and leftover pellets
      • ?x Dwarf Blue Leg Hermit Crabs (0.5")-- Free with eel or trigger
        • Feeding on detritus, leftover pellets, and algae
        • You get whatever the eel and trigger have yet to eat

      The livestock must sell before the live rock & equipment can be sold. Ask me about doing a package deal on the equipment and/or fishes. I can do trades for canister filters and nice driftwood for sure; ask about other trades.

      I can do shipping at the buyer's expense, but I prefer pick-up, delivery, or meeting half-way. The livestock must be shipped overnight, the equipment can be shipped via UPS Ground, and the live rock can be shipped overnight or by a slower method, if need be; there is no live arrival guarantee.

      Please PM me if you have any questions.

      About 45 minutes northeast of Pittsburgh. I can meet you part-way of the way here if you're interested in enough stuff to make the trip worth it. Please PM me with a list of what you're interested in, and we can go from there.

      Ah, okay. I can ship if need be; it should be pretty cheap to send equipment and possibly live rock (depending on shipping time frame) via UPS Ground especially with the discount I can get.
