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 .

      Sooo.. This have bin planed for a while now, actually over a year, i have no clue of what im doing, but i hope it will come together nicely! Filter on this big boy is a powerbead 85 runned by a 12000l\h pump.. will probably also have a 150 gallon sump\undertank to have raybabys in and polish filters like Fx5, my drip system will also probably be in there, with owerflow to sink. Lightning is not settled 100%, but i have ordered 3x 30w led with 6500 kelvin 2500 lumen, hope they will work out nicely! But enough with the talk, i started yesterday, will continue today, and this is where im at.

      This should be interesting. I'll be in the same situation next year when I build my first tank. :)
