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.

      Foot print is great, IMO though with communities your better off with a 30" hight.

      The width probably won't work for the entire life of the aros, def not for the RTC. How big are the fish currently?

      30" hmm... i should be able to do that i guess... just waiting on somebody in the DIY section give me a go signal on the glass thickness...

      The biggest aro is about 14" and the other two are 6"-8" now... the RTC wont be there for life... not worried on him, he will get a pond of his own... i think he is 14" by the looks of it.... man i cant get anymore width on the tank... thats the best i can squeeze... will try to get the pics of the area where i wanna put that up...

      If be more worried about the smaller two aros with a 14" rtc on the prowl. Footprint is nice though
