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 .

      Here are a few pics of my new EBJD. I got him on Thursday and he didnt eat and was timid and hiding a lot until today, when I added some internal parasite tonic, aquarium salt and upped the temp to 28C. Then after a few hours he seemed to find a new lease of life, started eating and becoming more active, swimming around and chasing his own reflection! I got the parasite stuff cos he had the dreaded white stringy poo, which he still has but it is now turning brown. So, fingers crossed.

      Let me know what you think. He's only about 1.5-2". I have called him G for now, because of the black "G" on his face. I think he is quite a nice specimen.
