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've been catching some turtles at my local lake and I've been catching what looks like snapping turtles but with a long nose, I've never seen one like this before. I've got two in my tank right now, You guys know anything on this?

      They're probably soft shell turtles.

      Luckily Mud Turtles are tiny. I wouldn't bring home anything, especially a Turtle which can potentially get freakin' huge, and possibly have varying land to water ratio, diet, or temperature needs...
