Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

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 .

      Bump, we need a little more support for these three awards. @DIDYSIS@DIDYSIS definitely has earned it, but I can't give it until the requirements are met. :)

      I've read and learned from some of his informative threads as well. So he has my vote.

      Do you still need admin endorsement? I assumed the nomination counted but if not I do as well

      You know Justin, this is a situation for which there is no precedent.

      On one hand, all of us in the staff are more or less on the same page about things, and I really doubt that any staff member would argue with another over a nomination, making an admin-originated nomination ok as an endorsement as well.

      On then other hand, I have recused myself from both voting and endorsing nominations. Even though I can and do give administrative input on awards, if the member base votes against my recommendation, I am obligated to honor the vote.

      So there could be precedent both ways. I'm not sure what the correct way to proceed would be. Perhaps we should put it to a vote for the members?

      If it makes a difference then he has my vote. I've been reading up on some of his threads and I've got to say that he does display an extraordinary amount of knowledge.

      From what I have seen the nominee always gives informed advice and opinions on a variety of topics based on years of real world experience. I definitely believe the award is deserved.

      DIDYSIS is a very informed and helpful contributor to MFK and the hobby. I would not be where I am today without his input and guidance on Eheim 2262 filters. My first stable tank freed me up to get a second tank, then a monster tank. He is one of a handful of contributors whose advice I consider to be the final word on a topic. I am grateful for his help, and I'm glad he's here.
