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 .

      And gas is cheaper in OR. I live in Crescent City, CA. A lot of people will drive the 15 minutes to buy gas in OR and go shopping....no sales tax in OR.

      I live in OR and I've never actually heard of someone getting a ticket. Trust me, with how much it rains here, you don't want to pump your own gas.

      Under cover but still cold and wet most of the year. I don't mind sitting in my heated car. I WOULD prefer the government stays out of it, but I pretty much feel that way about most things. I did live in CA for over 20 years and can't say I really miss pumping my own gas in the few years I did drive down there.

      If I remember correctly, these archaic gas pumping laws used to be more widespread back in the day.

      The funny thing is, our gas doesn't cost any more - like Pacu Mom said, we have cheaper gas than our neighbor to the south. I've always heard that it was more a matter of creating jobs than anything else, but I don't know how true that is.

      The exception to the law is commercial fueling - for most of my teens and twenties I pumped my own gas as our family had a farm account.
