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 .

      Probably an Azul or Temensis, can't see it clearly due to the quality of the picture. Can you make a better one?

      Ocellaris have spots on there first and second dorsal fins, but only Kelberi will have spangles on the pelvic and anal fins. That’s ocel all the way.

      I know, I meant the spangles on the body. My occelaris doesn’t have them. But my Kelberi does

      I've had ocels with spangles on the body when young, and some might even keep a few.

      Idk what your referring to as Spangles
      but ocellaris can vary quite a bit in color depending on if there hybrids or not there ocelots will be surrounded by more gold, witch will fade out as they grow.
