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 .

      How disturbing to walk into Walmart's pet department and see Angelfish being sold in tiny Betta bowls!!!! Apparently this is their "Fish of the Month" sales gimmick, which must be stopped! Angelfish are not like betta's. They do not go up to the surface to breath air. These angelfish will just die. They've no room to even move! Angelfish can double their size in just one week!

      And I'm sure Walmart is not informing buyers that the angelfish can not stay living in the betta bowl. That they need a tank with a filter, heater, and room to grow!

      Please everyone, take action by contacting Walmart Stores as well as your states Department of Agriculture, thru email or phone.

      All the Walmarts by me have stopped selling fish, I'm guessing they were made to because all 3 by my house stopped at the same time.

      THAT is great news! Walmart shouldn't sell fish. They no so little as to what they're doing and most of the time their fish are covered with Ick! It's a sad site but do they care? I wish all Walmarts would stop.

      Stop going to walmart. I don't even walk into their stores anymore. Call and complain though. It has worked for me in the past. I actually sent an email to walmart complaining about how terrible the fish were, and the manager called me and told me what they were doing to fix it.

      I've decided it's easier to not support them.

      I'm using the pics from someone on a different forum...but i thought this was absolutely crazy. I'm baffled as to how this came about...i mean they skipped guppies, livebearers, and stuck a fish that actually requires some care in a betta cup. :screwy:
