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 .

      My largemouth weighed 14.44 on July 31st...she eats bass up to 12" and shad up to 9". It isn't unusual for her not to eat but once every 4 or 5 days after a single giant meal.

      Feeding her gold fish daily sure doesn't seem to bulk her like massive meals do.

      Dont feed them goldfish....they do not have the nutrients your bass need, they are very bad to use for feeders. Rosy Reds, Guppies, Convicts are all better for your Bass, but a varied diet of feeders, shrimp, crickets, blood worms would be best if you dont want to train them to eat pellets or sticks.

      Do you keep her by herself or with other big bass? I have an 8 lber that ive had for a couple months and recently put another 6 lber with her. They seem to not get alone and im worried she might kill the smaller bass.

      i dont know, but ive heard only females can get that large so im assuming its female/female. At this time they seem to be okay, however the smaller bass has very bright stress colors at all times.

      How big is the Tank, and do you have any structure in your tank?

      Bump, would anyone recommend or be against feeding it fat head minnows (I think they're actually another type of rosey red minnow feeders) that I catch in a stream by my house? Or would you stay away from catching food in the wild. Also little blue gills and crawfish? I will probably stay away from the crawfish since I've seen others have fish die after eating them.
