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're risking a broken back or a dead gar with that small of a gar in that large of a tank.

      it is not ridiculous, small gar in big tank can led to broken back, even death gar! They can build up speed in a tank that big then bang their head into the glass, they can't do that in small tanks!

      With some fish, especially as a juvenile this is a very real possibility.African aros are one thing that comes to mind.

      try put a betta in a 200G tank and you will see it starve to death! Some fish that too skittish or not active will not be able to find food in a large tank.
      I.E: the bowfin, marble catfish that i see in the 10000 gallon tank at the Cabela's near me, they will stay at 1 spot most of the time and the Aquarium manager have to bring food to their mouth to keep them from starving!
