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 .

      Need some help, i have a 45 gallon sump filter with a three draw system comprised of mechanical and two draws of biological.. Im currently running it through pond filters, but i was wondering if there is like a small micron water polishing pad that they make to really polish the water ....

      are you talking about the aquaclear quick filters? i've used it and works well, not sure how accurate but it is supposed to filter particles down to 1 micron in size. Sure gets dirty fast but that just means it's doing its job :)
