Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

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 .

      On my smaller tanks, the plastic that holds the tank bits together always separates after a few years, never really bothers me tho.

      As for cats outside: the local outdoor cat population has declined by about 12 - 20 cats it seems, I expect the coyotes are finally doing their job (I've come across a number of cat carcasses in the backwoods, by the looks of the fresher kills it doesn't look like.... a fun way to die).

      Fun fact: little Felix (or max or whatever) is becoming a favorite meal to some animals,as they get the taste for it, animals known to eat domestic cats:
      Coyotes
      Red fox
      Mt lions
      Nile monitors
      Stray dogs
      Burmese python
      Bobcat
      Badger
      American alligator
      Common snapping turtle

      If the strays are smart enough to keep away from cars and nasty people, they usually live quite a while.

      I did a study once , where I compared the life spans of indoor vs outdoor cats, my results: indoor cats lived slightly over twice as long on average as outdoor cats, and outdoor cats were much more likely to be severely injured or crippled (eye problems were the most common problem noted).

      Never mind. Spent about 30 minutes trying to make it work but it won't. Next time I go to home Depot I'm getting some acrylic cut for me.

      My mom's cat would sit and watch her discus swim for hours! Damned thing was obsessed with them. I told her he was planning a heist. About a year later, she heard loud screeching and water splashing. The suspect was caught with both of it's right side legs submerged in the water. It had been walking on the glass top and fell in the space created behind the glass panel on top and the rim of the aquarium,by the intake tube. He was supremely pissed! If fish could laugh, they would have been ROFL!!!
