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'm helping my friend build a basking platform on top of his tank for his 2 RES. Something like this, http://www.arcatapet.com/item.cfm?cat=15256. His tank is 30.5"L x 12.5"W. He only wants to cover about half the tank. What should we build it out of and how are we going to waterproof it?

      Plexi Glass and Silicone.

      Then decorate it with whatever you have to make it look a little better.


      I guess foam would work too, but that seems really difficult.

      I made one out of plexiglass and some teflon.

      This was in my 30 gallon tank but I have the same for my 50 gallon with a sheet of green grass stuff instead of the rock and log.

      I just bought a 200 gallon tank so I'll be thinking of something for that :drool:
