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 .

      ok, im going off to college in a few years, and I want to make sure that my arowana can get his water changes, but my parents may no longer be physically capable of doing them. Even now, it is a problem. I NEED to get one installed ASAP. Every week, my dad is grumbling as he helps me take buckets of steaming hot water (we dont have hot water in our basement) and drags them down the stairs. I dont want my aro to lose his water changes, he'll die. so, HOW do you install an automatic water change system? price is no object. it NEEDS to be done, so ill raise every last penny myself if I have to. he should get a 50% every week.

      Hello all i purchased a automatic water change controller that has been working great for me for over a year now. It`s a plug and play system from www.makoproseries.com
      ran across this old post and this system is worth the mention.:headbang2

      if it's in the basement, there's probably an easy way to setup a drip system. Once that's rigged, you'll never again physically do a w/c again!


      OH ****!!! THIS IS HELLA OLD! Hammer is lamer with non-working site
