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 have 2 Polleni´s. They are 3-4"
      In the store the two of them had teamed up and were beating the crap out of the other Polleni in the tank.
      Were getting bigger and stuck together so i was hoping it was a pair.

      I have had them now for 5 weeks. One is a little bigger and is dominant.

      Any way to see of i have a male + female or two males? :)

      The bigger one:

      and the smaller one:

      Not the best photos, were just trying the get a clear profile pic of them.

      Another one, just for fun, taken 2 days after i got them:

      I know nothing of this species but knowing cichlids in general if both are big enough to breed I would say that the top one is a male and the bottom one a female.

      Adult male fish are much larger than females and develop longer extensions on the dorsal and anal fins. They also tend to have a more rounded head shape. per www.seriouslyfish.com
