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.

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 .

      Okay, here is a list of (future) monster catfish that I am regretfully selling:

      First is Sorubiumichthys planiceps
      [​IMG]
      [​IMG]
      Planiceps with B.flavicans in the background
      [​IMG]

      Next is Brachyplatystoma flavicans
      [​IMG]

      And now Brachyplatystoma filamentosum
      [​IMG]

      And last is Brachyplatystoma tigrinum (formerly Merodontotus tigrinis)
      [​IMG]

      I will post exact sizes with prices tomorrow afternoon/evening.

      Shipping is available (plenty of positive experience).

      No, I am not a vendor or wholesaler, just clearing out the last of my fish and tanks.

      Please send any questions to TREASURECHESTAQUATICS@comcast.net

      -Thanx,Tony

      Thanks Jamie.....the break is partly voluntary, partly forced by circumstances.
      I'm sure I won't be gone too long....that's if I can ever clear out all the livestock and get the tanks out of here so I won't be tempted!!!!:D

      Haha, wish I could help you out and purchase a few but work is already picking up and just no time to setup anymore tanks.

      You can always stop by and visit Chris and Dale if you get the itch to see some fishies;):)


      Good luck!
