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 .

      Great Britain’s The Sun newspaper reports that last week Chris Grimmer (left) landed the largest albino catfish ever (the paper cleverly nicknamed the monster Fin Kong). He caught the freak fish on the River Ebro in Spain. Who knew there was such a category? Albino catfish? Really?

      Grimmer’s spooky cat was 8 feet long and weighed 194 pounds. Grimmer told reporters that his 30-minute fight with the fish “was like trying to reel in a bus. I could hardly walk afterwards, but it was worth it."

      I’m guessing he said “bus” because that catfish looks like a yellow school bus and not an albino. But then again, I didn’t know there was a category for pigment challenged fish in the first place, so what do I know?
