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 read that swordfish is warmer-blooded about twenty years ago.

      I would assume that most large fast-swimming fish are a few degrees warmer than the water they are in. The temperature should depend on the species and on the environment.

      It is just a thought. I have no idea how it related to the color of the muscle.

      I wonder whether or not the internal organs are warm. I would assume that at least the heart is.

      Yeah, I've got a list at home (I'm at the zoo right now). I'll dig it up when I get done this afternoon. Alot of them on my list are sharks and other marine fish. It's by no means a complete list in any way, but it should give you an idea.

      Tuna and most all of the sharks in the Lamnid family (Mackeral sharks). Species that belong to the lamnid shark family are the salmon shark, white shark, porbeagle, shortfin mako and longfin mako.

      Tuna can literally "cook" themselves when you fish for them, during the fight.
      That is why it is best to reel them in quickly or else they might not be able to live because of the dead muscle tissue. It is ok though if you are going to eat them. Its just because they move, at such high speeds and their muscles contract and release so quickly.
      Creepy stuff!
