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 .

      I'm in eastern Pa. If you concede your love for the Flyers over the Pens than I'd be willing to meet any of you Yinzers for a fish swap. Come to the dark side, it's the perfect time.

      I'm near Pittsburgh. There are few of us lurking around on here for sure. As for conventions, they are non-existent in this state lol.

      P.S. the Pens are better than the Flyers but the Bruins trump both of them sooo...

      Hard to argue right now, at least with the Pens winning the cup, (they did have a great playoff run) but Don Sweeney will have the Bruins in shambles in two years max. They got to cut that guy loose before you've got a team full of Rinaldos. Let me know if this convention ever goes down too, I'm definitely interested.

      Even in "cichlid" clubs most folks keep plenty of other fish and have speakers on a variety of topics. And most of the clubs I listed aren't even cichlid clubs!
