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 .

      Okay which ones are fighting? Are they still fighting.. They may just be establishing dominance which can take a day. If they are just chasing its dominance if you actually see them lock jaws then you got a problem...

      So...6 fish total? I would overcrowd it to reduce aggression. At least 20 fish for 80 gallon or if u want to keep fish population low then all male tank.

      If they are chilling out it sounds like it was just establishing dominance and putting the fish in its place.

      Not a fan of africans but ya sometimes you have to overstock. They do have nice colors and add alot of movement, but something about hand feeding a south or central american cichlid. They actually care when you come in the room
