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 .

      Got a new tank Friday night. Spent yesterday and this morning painting the back. Finally got the decor and water in it this afternoon. Of course then I found out the filter that came with it wasn't working; which is why the water is cloudy. Have two AC 70s coming tomorrow. It's a 46 bowfront I scored for $100. Figured this would be my toe in the water and I'd like to get a 125 later this year.

      Looks nice. Two ac70s should be good on that tank. What are you stocking it with?

      Once I measure my basement to ensure a six foot tank fits it'll likely be a cichlid growout tank. Definitely a convict and a fire mouth and some sort of bottom dweller.

      Thanks! It has new gravel in it so it needs to settle and it won't have a filter until tomorrow.

      Nice find. Bowfront tanks are very attractive, and your aquascape looks really good. You can find 4' and 5' tanks that are wider and have the same or greater volume if a 6' won't work.

      Yeah my local Petsmart has the 5 foot 120 gallon in stock and I liked it but would love a 125.

      Very nice. Bowfronts can look pretty sick when done right. Keep us updated!

      Got my AC 70s installed and some rosy reds in it to cycle out (my son was not going to allow for a fishless cycle lol).
