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 .

      Aren't they a CITES Red List species? I don't think we can own them here in the US.

      CITIES is CITIES.......The ICUN Red List is the Red List.......Neither have any bearing on each other and operate as different entities......Many species are Red Listed and are still CITIES 2 or 3.........Or aren't even on the CITIES list........

      Now as for Coconut Crabs......The novelty factor would wear off really quick........Nothing like having a Crab the size of a small dog, that can sever fingers and break bones, hanging around in your bedroom/living/dining room and or your basement..........They just aren't Pet trade viable.......Food trade, hell yes..........

      Hmm, to have a skull-cracking crab or not to have a skull-cracking crab. Let me think.
