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 have a 10 inch Oscar. I want to trade it in at the LFS for store credit. How much do you think the LFS can sell it for?

      not much I would think, they tend to be pretty tight about that. I saw an Oscar that size @ my LFS and it was selling for 9.99, so I would think not much. However, each store is different and you might be able to get more credit for him. GL

      yeah there are tons of people trying to get rid of larger oscars, so i owuld think unless he is like an uncommon color morph or something you wont get much for him, i would try selling him yourself

      yeah my LFS rarley buys large oscars and when they do get one they usually dont pay anything for them, plus they dont keep the small ones in stock because they will just end up geting them back when they out grow the owners tank anyway.

      Most Oscars that I see at LFS shops are pretty beaten up. On average at my LFS the give 5-10 n store credit and sale them for $20 but are to say.
