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.

      x2 I received one of the pairs and what John calls "juveniles"-LOL. In actuality they're really sub adults IMO. Because he is a true hobbyist with an old school mentality, you'll only get top shelf stuff because he cares. I showed cichlids many years ago. The breeder male he sent me is as good if not better than any Best In Show cichlid I showed back in the day. Purchase without slightest bit of hesitation.

      I have over 12 left. These are not schooling fish, really. Get along in groups but will not spawn and pairs that do form will be territorial/semi-aggressive towards the others in the tank.

      If you have a 4' tank, 4 fish will do fine, form pairs, and spawn. Can try for 2 M and 2 F, but no guarantees. Can be tricky fish to keep, like good water flow/movement, don't like aggressive fish and do like places to claim/retreat to.

      Friday delivery, would require QT/Shipping prep now and shipping overnight on Thursday, don't really want to rush and/or ship on a Thursday, would prefer to ship on a Monday for Tuesday arrival.

      For these fish to do well, aside from water movement, territory of their own, appropriate tank makes, is clean tank water (under 40ppm nitrates, 0 ammonia/nitrites). They have been raised in Houston Texas tap water which is 300+KH, about 150GH and 8.4pH.

      Having problems contacting you to arrange shipment. So I would like a group of 4 and I need them shipped to Portland Or. to arrive on or before this Friday because I leave for work and won't return for a month or more. I can be reached at Joneserick at frontier d0t c0m. I do hope that we can to some agreement thanks. They'll be going into a 6' 150 pretty much by themselves

      The price for 4 of these had been posted for $175 including all shipping, boxing and handling charges. Overnight shipping averages, for me, $75 via FedEx published rates (FedEx medium priority box, from 77429, 4lbs and you can check shipping prices). We can do $100 plus you pay actual shipping charges if you would like.

      Wish I had a better way of getting them to you, always thought that shipping charges were way to high, until I started doing this.

      Fish are not hardy like plecos, ground wont work, so overnight is the only way to go with a arrive alive and healthy guarantee.

      Order today, get them Tuesday by 4:30 local time, continental US only. References available upon request.

      Have a few left and another batch about 2 months away from being sell-able.
