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 .

      Yea, pretty much anything. I feed all my fishes (including my old clown knife) live black worms, shrimp, squid, and chicken heart (with occasional feeder fish).

      They eat pretty much anything that will fit in thier mouths.

      I feed mine pellets, frozen krill, Formula One frozen cubes, shrimp, fancy guppies, platies and convict cichlids.

      I gave them a bunch of neon tetras once too.

      How big is it? mine started out at 2.5" and ate frozen bloodworms and beef heart, now at 9" they eat earth worms, occasional rosy reds, and even until now they love frozen bloodworms, well i should say thawed bloodworms.

      Live foods : guppies , rosey red minnows, ghost shrimp, earthworms
      frozen: bloodworms, mysis shrimp,brine shrimp , krill, squid and frozen silversides
      some will take pellets, lean meaty foods such as beefheart are good too
      but you need to balance their diet for nutrition so vary the diet, not just one
      thing.and skipping a meal will not hurt them remember in the wild food is not
      always available

      My clown knife was fed with bloodworms, guppies, mollies, small frogs. They're not too fussy eaters.

      I love it when they breach the water surface as they swoop upwards to swallow an unsuspecting fish. *GULP SPLASH!*
