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 .

      Don't get me wrong, I still use slate for my Balloon Green Terrors tank, but when I was younger I had a beautiful 55 gallon setup that was months and months in the making. I had lots of slate in there. My first and only fish I put in there was an Oscar. A couple of months later my oscar started ramming stuff, and knock a piece of slte loose...and of course the slate slid down and cracked the glass. 15 years and multiple tanks later I think I may be a bit wiser. And thank goodness for silicone.

      Did it crack the side glass or the bottom? I'm paranoid about this happening which is why the first thing I ever add when setting up a new tank is eggcrate.
