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 .

      So I did my research and common tank mate's for an arowana are fire eels. I've seen and heard of many being perfect tank mate's. So I got both and raised them from a young and small size. Apparently my arowana is a bit more aggressive than others. The arowana at the time was about a foot and a half long and the fire eel was quite longer. Well i came home one day to find the tail of my fire eel sticking out of my arowana mouth. Unfortunately I was too late and lost a gorgeous fire eel!

      That stinks, some fish are like that. If it fits they will try to eat it.

      Sorry to hear, that sucks. If it fits in a fish's mouth, I generally assume it will try to eat it. (sometimes- like here- they will try even if it doesn't fit)

      Sucks but these things happen sometimes. This Dorado made a full recovery, only to be killed by the other Dorados a couple weeks later 20170225_064127.jpg
