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 .

      Hey guys, just thought I'd post a few pics of some of the North American (pretty much all Pennsylavnia) species I'm currently keeping. I really haven't posted much on here lately, especially the actual fish keeping forums. Life has gotten hectic for me so I can't pump out the media that I used to be able to haha. Though, I am hoping I'll have more time to photograph/record my tanks in the near future. I'm nowhere close to being a good photographer, but these are some of the half decent pictures I've taken lately. Anyway, enjoy.

      Top --> Bottom: juvenile Pumpkinseed, 13" Yellow Bullhead, Bluebreast Darter, Johnny Darter, sub-adult White Sucker, Tippecanoe Darter, Central Stoneroller, juvenile Creek Chub, Stream Tank, juvenile White Suckers grazing, Yellow Perch school, Rainbow Darter, Bluebreast Darter, Greenside Darter, Mottled Sculpin

      Thank you. I caught these ones with a kick seine, but, I could easily get a few larger ones with worms or flies need be.
