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 .

      Well not really a beast compared to what i have seen on here but still pretty damm big, around 7-8" both of them. Should be picking them up tomorrow!

      Question...the one on the front has white coming through in the middle of black bars already, this is a sign of old age i suppose, but does that neccessarily mean that he has reached full length?

      Thanks

      Thanks guys, but do you think he has reached full length? LFS says hes just been getting really fat over the last year.
