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 .

      Whats the probability of the fish you order surviving? I've thinking or turning to ordering because I can never find exactly what I'm lookin for at any Lfs around. How many days can they be in the box, any info would be appreciated

      They have a high probability if you are purchasing them from someone who knows how to pack and ship fish. I have never had problems with Live aquaria or aquascapes live stock. Live aquaria will replace the fish if it dies within 2 weeks of arrival. Most LFS I've been to don't ever do that. I say go for it. Have you tried asking your LFS to order what you are looking for? Usually most just buy what they know will sell. If you request something special and the wholesaler has them in stock, they should have no problems placing a special order for you. I try to support my LFS as much as possible, I would go that route if you haven't asked them yet.

      Best thing to do is to order fish with a live delivery guarantee.

      Liveaquaria.com and aquascapeonline.com are the two I have used. Haven't used any other sites so I can't recommend others. Live aquaria has a 2 week guarantee. I'm not sure what aqua scapes is.
