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 .

      Most fish from Oz are hard to get in the USA (except barramundis). I would love some spangled perch and eel cats. I would also really love a pair of nursery fish but they get to big for most tanks.

      any time ive kept spangled perch they are skittish while under 10 cm but once they are over it and given space are like any other grunter and when hungry are very very interactive with you.
      spangled perch here are almost always available and are like less then $10 there are different strains and they can cost different amounts.

      jungle perch are awesome they're for sale at a shop in the city but are too expensive to risk
