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 .

      You should move him to a different aquarium as the current inhabitants will not work out long term.

      yeah, definitely not a good tankmate situation, and it will eventually get bad. better to adjust now and save yourself the problems. gar being on pellets is a good thing, in that matter the fish is just fine--

      MonstersRus trust what everyone is saying with feeding your gar pellets and not feeders. Its cheaper in the long run, trust me.
