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 .

      Hey

      My old man is typical novice fish keeper, i.e. does practically zero maintenance and buys fish randomly without any research. Buts it's all ok because "the fish are fine" and "fish only grow as big as their surroundings". Yea, I've given up trying to educate him. He has a 90g with various fish including 2 clown loaches, one of which is getting towards 4 or 5 inches. I was thinking of taking the 2 clowns off his hands and keeping them in my own 180g which is well maintained. Problem is, I don't want to get any more than the 2 he already has. I know they like to be kept in groups but I thought this would at least be better than them drowning in their own filth like they are right now. Could 2 do ok as part of my community? Tank and stock as follows...

      6 X 2 X 2 180g
      2 X FX6
      2 X Santa Monica Algae Scrubber
      1 30% Water Change Per Week

      6 X YoYo Loach
      4 X Dwarf Chiclid
      4 X Pictus Catfish
      4 X Redline Torpedo Barb
      1 X Spiny Eel
      1 X Sailfin Plec

      Thoughts appreciated. Cheers

      Steve

      Should be fine, watch for a little aggression between the yoyos and the clowns although even that shouldn't be bad.
