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 .

      I'm going to switch over to NLS after reading Poblos articles on his foods . How ever when I do can I just switch the food like bam or do I need to ween the fish to the new food ?

      Depends if the fish take it. If they eat it, you're good. You shouldn't notice adverse effects from switching brands.

      I used to feed my cichlids NLS exclusively but now I got 60+ fish ranging 3" and up I can't do NLS because it's too expensive. I roll with Ken's Premium Cichlids pellets now. 5 lbs for $22 as oppose to NLS $55. My cichlids been eating Ken's for months now, same beautiful color, nothing's changed except for more cash in my wallet.

      I think I read the NLS and the first/main ingredient is wheat something aka filler crap. Correct me if I'm wrong....

      That's incorrect. The first ingredient is a fish meal, white fish if I remember correctly.

      New Life Spectrum. Is most definitely the best. I still would mix it up though, a little Hikari and Omega One won't hurt.
