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 .

      Tank size depends on the species.

      Small species like histrix, scobina, reticulata (magdalenae) can be kept in tanks as small as a 180 for life.

      Larger species like motoro, leoplodi, henlei, tiger, flower, etc., will need a tank with a footprint of at least 8' x 4' when they reach adulthood.

      Smaller tanks (75, 90, 125, etc.) can easily used as pup rearing tanks for a decent amount of time.
