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 .

      Right before my JD laid her eggs, she ate a ton of food. And I mean a TON. She started acting less shy, and began to mark off a section of the tank as JD territory where she later laid her eggs. Her tummy area was swollen pretty noticeably for a week or two before she finally laid them. Do you have a prego?

      Ya I think the correct term is "gravid".

      I have never had JDs spawn before but my other fish just look fatter and rounder when they are full of eggs (gravid). They can lay eggs when they look normal and skinny as well though.
