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 .

      After Monster Energy used Beastie Boys' music in a promotional video, the group sought up to $2.5 million for copyright infringement and false endorsement.

      The Beastie Boys have won their lawsuit against Monster Beverage, which was initiated in 2012 after the company illegally used Beastie Boys' music in a promotional video, Rolling Stone reports. Following the group's previously-reported testimonials, the Beastie Boys have been awarded $1.5 million, though Monster's lawyer told Reuters that they plan to appeal the verdict.

      The Beastie Boys' lawsuit against Monster Energy Drink was initiated in 2012 after the company included parts of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage," "So What'cha Want," "Make Some Noise" and "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun" on a promotional video on their website. They also allegedly included a 23-minute medley of Beastie Boys songs made available for download as an MP3. As Rolling Stone reports, the songs were taken from footage of a live set by DJ Z-Trip at the Canadian festival "Ruckus in the Rockies", which was sponsored by Monster and held only a few days after Adam Yauch died in May of that year.

      I can't believe Monster Energy would try to do that to our forum. The logos don't even look similar

      What in the world ?!?!

      Has Monster Energy lost its corporate mind?!

      Are the suing everybody in the hopes that one Judge will award them money?!

      Ridiculous!

      I'm glad I saw this before I bought another one of their drinks.
