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 wish people would do a little research before combining predatory fish. This forum is so active and has so many experienced owners. You could probably get an answer to your question the same day.

      Of course an endli would eat a loach or a rope fish. :(

      I totally agree it was mentioned several times not to mix Ropefish with UJ polys.

      Good decisions are based on experience. Experience is based on bad decisions. That rope fish was just a little too small. Otherwise would have been fine. Dismount your high horse magpie.

      Yeah, people love bichirs here. But I guarantee you that any poly owner would not suggest bichirs with loaches.

      And no - no size rope fish is recommended with any lower jaw bichir.

      You can gain experience by learning from OTHERS mistakes. You don't have to make them yourself.

      Yeah , no. Big ropefish with small endli is fine... what matters is size, size of tank, and aggression.
