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 .

      This might be obvious to some but I just went to the dollar store and grabbed two 8x10 picture frames.

      I took the glass out of the frames and put it on top of my 20gallon long. No cutting necessary at all, they fit perfectly with a little extra long wise so you can slide them on top of each other.

      Beats paying $20 for glass at the big chain store!

      Be careful, it's probably very thin and a lot more fragile than normal lids.

      Yes, its definitely thinner than regular glass lids. I would not recommend it if you have any glass-banging cichlids like Oscar's lol.

      But if you have smaller species or your fish dont do that, it's a great option.

      Not a bad idea for a small tank. I might just do that for my 10g that has no lid. Thanks!

      Another idea now that I think about it is craft glass at menards. They have bigger pieces for good prices too.

      I got glass tops cut to size for my 150 for around $10. Thin glass is cheap fosho.
