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 a 75 gallon that I am going to move my 20 or so 1" Ikolas into shortly, I know that Tropheus love eating algae off of rocks, but does anyone have any suggestions on a pleco to help keep the algae off of the glass. I have used bristlenoses before, but I am looking for something different. Water is hard, no wood in tank, just rocks...

      No pleco will clean only the glass....

      Also, most to all will appreciate some wood in the tank.
