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 .

      Sajica is a good idea. A pair of any of the cryptoheros type species would work. Look into P. Panamensis as well, I have them and they are cool fish, would be fine in a 40gal.

      Any tips on where to find some solid info on getting into the shrimp game? haha . They are fun little critters and I do love to do aquascapes.

      Loads of info all over! I have a few breeder friends, I got my basic cherries from a friend for free. They breed like maniacs :p

      Aquascaping is a load of fun too! I suggest you try it with shrimp, they keep everything spick and span ;)

      I'd recommend cherries or sakuras to start, easy to get and easy to keep too. Just run the tank for a few weeks beforehand to help build up algae and bio bacteria since shrimp are somewhat allergic to new tanks

      I second the Cryptoheros idea. I have a couple of forties ,One was a nano , with puffers, badis, galaxy rasbora but now houses my juvenile Green Texas.(with a lot of nano still in there:eek:) Cryptoheros are my favorite behavior wise, a couple in a forty you couldn't go wrong with any in that genus.

      When my spare forty is empty I was planning on a Rainbow or HRP pair with some swordtails.

      A pair of Jewel cichlid's would do great in there, also would be a great pair to do a bioscape with.

      A red high fin wolf fish could live in a 40. They generally just lay on the bottom until it is time to feed.

      This sounds super fun! It's definitely very different from what I've done in the past as well! Maybe I'll give it a go. Thanks for the info! :)
