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 .

      Yes, it's a breathing siphon. Here's a thread to learn how to determine their sexes. One way to be able to let them show their organs to make it easy to determine their sexes is by holding them on their shell while in the water. They will eventually come out of their shell and allow you to see whether they have the penis or not. The penis in males' cases should be at their right profile, not left. In most cases, they do show their penis but only right after copulating a female.
