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 am getting one soon! i have a jardinii, a wallago attu, and a scomberoides. could and should they be in the same tank? the scomb grows slow but the other two will grow just as fast as the TM. Just a guess. the point is, they all grow fairly fast. any other tips would be greatly appreciated! thanks! water temp? surroundings? tank mates? food? light? etc.?

      I haven't kept tiger muskies, but from my experience with smaller Esox I would recommend against this combination. Esox are shy fish and do not do well with pushy tankmates- they stress easily and are not good competitors for food. They also prefer cooler water than your other fish.

      If this combo ever would work you making the right choice by using the hybrid rather then the pure breed parents species. As far as esox species go tigers are the most out going. It shouldnt be able to hold its own, maybe even out eat the others. I would worry about the scomb not getting enough food.

      the scomb is completely skittish, although he's beginning to show signs of aggression, the cat is skittish as well and only eats what fits in his mouth. the aro would be the most aggressive as they grow, so the muskie should be ok i guess until size tanks over. hrmm.. thanks for the thoughts so far.

      I bet most people who get them go fishing, but I'm sure they occasionally appear on AquaBid.
