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 .

      Nice Mike. I got 3 from snookn myself about 2 months ago. Mine are 3 to 4inches now and they were tiny when they came in. I need to try the tilapia thing.

      sweet..i'll def take a vid tonight..

      :D

      2 out of my 4 ate tilapia and one ate tiny pieces of carnivore pellets..IMO when getting baby cichla esp if trying to avoid feeding live food start them out of frozen shrimp or tilapia..as they adjust quicker..but then thats just my opinion..would love to see pics of your little guys..even though they are a bit bigger then mine would love to see how ours turn out ..
