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 .

      Tank is doing well! I originally bought two baby Ocellaris clowns, but one seems to have disappeared in my tank... I assume it died but I am contemplating replacing it.
      As far as fish, I've been wondering, how many can I actually fit in this tank (40 gallons)? I had a long list of ideas, but I'm not sure how many of them I can fit in here. (I've given up on the anemone idea, just fyi). Of the fish I listed originally, how many do you think I can actually put in here?

      You should keep that clown fish in your tank for at least 1 or 2 more weeks before adding new fishes. Also, the safe way is only add 1 fish per week so you don't have to deal with mini cycle. You must have a quarantine tank, soon or later you will waste all your money because of diseases killing all your fishes, medication usually NOT an option in a main tank. You will need more rocks if you want more fishes, create more caves, hangover. You can visit some LFS focus on saltwater and look at their display tank, you can see 3/4 of their tank volume are fill with live rocks and fishes are happy with those setup.
      Note:
      It's not recommended to buy baby fishes, they are hard to keep in newly tank setup.

      A little earlier I came across an old AST thread that a new member had bumped.I noticed your name in a few posts in there and when I saw this new thread I remembered your name and was just curious if you still had it nd how it was doing if so.
