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.

      got this cool guy at the same petsmart where i got the parrot x green texas in my other thread. his body is yellow and tail is red. im not sure if hes just a different type of archocentrus or a convict hybrid. either way hes become my new favorite.

      It's possible that it's just a convict or a convict x HRP hybrid.

      That's a nice looking fish! My petsmart has to be one of the worst selections around. Sometimes they barely have oscars.

      it cant be a normal convict, its yellow. if it is a hybrid id guess its got some HRP for the red tail and archocentrus nanoluteus for the yellow


      i had to do a double take when i saw his colors and make sure it wasnt a reflection of something in tank


      i picked him up from the petsmart by my work which is in the rich neighborhood. the one by me doesnt really have anything special.
