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 .

      There are marbled convicts. Hondorian redpoints are very similer to convicts. There are also a lot of hybrids convicts like the jellybean parrot.

      I've heard of Blue Convicts but I think they're a type of hybrid. I think it's a mix of Houndrus Red Points and Convicts.

      There are only two types of Convict Cichlid (Archocentrus nigrofasciatus) - regular and albino.

      "Blue Convict" is actually a different fish and not a hybrid that kind of looks like a regular Convict Cichlid, "Blue Convict" is Archocentrus sp.. Check out http://www.gcca.net/fom/Archocentrus_sp_Honduran-Red-Point.htm for more information.

      Not a convict, it's an African cichlid that's not even related.

      That's not known for sure, it might be but at the moment is not considered the same.
