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 .

      Hey guys, I thought of this the other day and thought it would be pretty sweet, from my research the barb is not poisonous its the sheath around the barb, so after my stingray sheds a barb couldnt i make it into a necklace and it would be safe since the sheath isnt on it anymore?

      Great for show, please do not wear.
      Given the particular length of the spine on your necklace (very cool) you could place your self in danger. Danger not from the venom, proteins etc......Danger from the actual trauma the serrations can/would inflict upon your neck.
      The human neck is very, very,very vacscular as well as being quite supple. The average spine shed from even a juvenile ray could be 1 - 11/2 inches long.
      The human neck in cross section is about 5 -7 inches.
      The internal/external jugulars are merely 1/4 - 1/2 inch under your skin.

      Do the math...........Awesome necklace........just be very careful if you actually wear it.
