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 .

      Is it possible to have a tank with a system that could maintain its self for 3-4 months at a time?

      Well, I've never done it personally, but a drip system and working out an autofeeder would be the main things. You'd probably have to look into commercial autofeeders for like large scale fish hatcheries--I'm sure there's something out there but I've never had a need to look into it.

      What about filtration Einsteins? You may get away with just a few small fish for that length of time but large fish or many fish in a tank, I don't think the mechanical could last that long before clogging.

      what in the heck is "filtration Einsteins"? I didn't find it by Googling different ways.

      I wouldn't reccomend trying it at all, but it is possible. There are many many canisters that do fine for longer periods of time without clogging. I've seen members before posting about having not opened their Eheim 2262's for a year at a time period. I have gone 6 months on my FX5's in the past.

      IMO there is too much that can go wrong with periods of time this long to ever consider doing this myself but in theory it could be done. The auto feeding I see being one of the challenes. Most of these systems hold enough food for only a few weeks at a time.
