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 .

      well decided to start a thread about raising them and thing i have or will learn along the way. In Maine where I live tanks over 200 gallons are unheard of. Let alone the thousands of gallons it takes to raise a red tail or a tiger shovel nose. I hope to log what i learn along the way here and do video logs on youtube as i go.

      More to come as the tiger and redtail get bigger I will be setting up a temp intraq pool and record that along with cost for everyone and do a walk around on the area that will house the final tank

      Cool tanks and fish. The unknown white fish looks to be a pink convict. The random cichlid is an african cichlid, but I can't tell which because of the lighting

      Actually the unknown has been figured out its an almost pure white flowerhorn. That might explain why at one third the size it has been able to keep the TSN in check.

      Well, I still think its a pink convict. The shape of the head is nothing like that of a flowerhorn IMO.

      Here's a pic of a pink convict off the web that looks exactly like yours,

      Pink convicts are also called white convicts.
