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 .

      I've got a couple of large severums, they're not aggressive at all (other than with each other, 1 may have to go). Anyway I was wondering if it's even worthwhile trying to add an angelfish. I've already put in the jurupari and festivums, they're maybe half the size of the sevs, and the sevs ignore them. Any chance it could work?

      I done it lots of times over the last Ten years.. I have had..

      3 Adult Sevs with 2 Juvi Angels
      2 Adult Angels with Adult Sev
      2 Adult Angels with 3 Juvi Sevs

      And i currently have 1 Adult Angel, 1 juvi Angel with 3 Sevs of varying sizes and a Blue Acara.

      They never pay any attention to eachother.

      My friend has Jack Dempseys, Yellow Labs, Geophagus Brasiliensis, Firemouth, Convicts, Oscars, Blue Acaras with 3 Angels also..for the last 5 years and has never had a problem.

      Well then I'll try it. My JD also ignores everybody. My LFS occasionally gets large ones in for relatively cheap, I may grab some or maybe get some wild ones from someplace (I like the normal silver look).

      Any idea if you can keep Green Severum Cichlids with Sailfin Mollies? Or is that a recipe for disaster? Just starting a new tank and I have 2 green sevs and am trying to see what peaceful fish I can mix in. Gourami's too maybe?

      I would think sevs and angels would be a brilliant combo, both my most favorite fish next to ebjd
