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 .

      What do you guys think about these lizards? I have a glass viv that's 34" wide, 30" front to back, and 60" tall (I think). It's all glass with a screen top.

      I've been trying to decide what to put in it, and I've been thinking more along the lines of a lizard than a snake or amphibian, and I stumbled across the monkey lizards here http://market.kingsnake.com/detail.php?cat=34&de=782719.

      I'm not ready to purchase yet, as I still have some house work to finish, and then I'd need to get the viv ready with dirt, plants, water, and lights, but these seem like a cool, interesting species to keep.

      Are they very difficult to take care of? Are they handle-able at all? Does anyone have any specific care information they could share with me to help with my decision?

      I haven't been able to find a whole lot of care information online, other than they're highly arboreal, and will eat a variety of insects, including crickets and wax worms, and like high humidity.

      I was thinking I could keep a group of 1.2, 1.3, or 2.4 in it, if its large enough for that many.

      I have never seen them before, sorry mate. Try finding a good care sheet online and let us know.
