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 was looking for a store near me that has exotic fish and i found one that has marbled snakeheads, red snakeheads,and blotched snakeheads on their fish listings. i thought that snakeheads were illegal. i also heard that the government is being lenient on the smaller species of snakeheads? well, anyway, i was wondering if anyone could give me more info on these species of snakeheads, and of other "dwarf" species. i am considering getting one if they have them.thanks.:nilly:

      Sorry, a little far away to understand (in the UK) why are Snakeheads illegal in the US?

      the large northern snakeheads and other large species have invaded our waterways especially in the south. but i have heard that maryland has also been invaded. so they are illegal

      The most appropriate course of action would be to buy them, then report the store to the authorities :)

      Man, what part of the tos dealing with restricted species do you guys not understand.

      Hate to be your party pooper, but, what if the authorities decided to take action against not only the op but this web site for encouraging the trade of said species.
