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 love pbass, they are my absolute favorite fish, but my largest tank is only a 150(18" wide) so I haven't kept one until adulthood. Since I sold my baby bass a while ago I've been thinking about my future in pbass keeping :naughty: I want to plan a tank for some pbass but would like to know what dimensions I should be looking for in a pbass tank. Is 30" wide enough? I don't really like very tall tanks. Would 26" tall be sufficient for them? What is a minimum length? I'm not really sure what kind of pbass I want to keep, but I do know I for sure want tems and azuls :drool: Any advice for a pbass noob? Thanks guys!
