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 so first of, why does everybody refer to their fishes and fish fry as 'batches,' it sounds like your baking a cake and quite frankly toying with non-living things?

      A group of fish eggs is called 'Roe'. The word 'batch' became acceptable from its use by breeders. Multiple spawns of roe were tracked by many methods of alphanumeric cataloging to separate and identify roe specific to breeding pairs of adults. The cataloging identifier became known as batch (batch 101, batch C, batch 1-2a, batch WCmxF1f, etc.).

      When dealing with large amounts of fish unless you wish to take the time to name them all it is very easy to refer to them as a batch. Batch meaning group of them. I.e. flock of birds or batch of fish. It's just another commonly accepted word for grouping and labeling fish.
