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 .

      any things possible but i highly doubt that the catfish did it what exactly do you mean ? how does it swim that is worrying you ? and for the not eating thats pretty normal and very very common for new eels all most all of the spiny eels i've had have gone on many hunger strikes

      Try giveing it some time and make sure the waters clean do a few good water changes and just give him time to settle in

      Try feeding it Blood worms, earth worms, red wigglers, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, krill, and regular shrimp the kind people eat
