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.

      @shookONES@shookONES ive kept large bichirs with charcin no problem. I had a 20” endli biggest appetite you can imagine with 5-7” atf and armatus. I believe @Troy1015@Troy1015 had similar set up armatus, tiger fish, and you already know his collections of expensive worms

      I just want to take a minute to shout out @fenderwai@fenderwai at Monster Aquarium. The last few years Toyin has become unresponsive to messages, probably more concerned with maintaining wholesale relationships and ignoring the low level hobbyists. No worries, I’ll spend my money elsewhere. After venting my frustrations with John, he came through big time. Today was an epic day for polys for me. I added several new fish all wild caught. It’s a surreal feeling getting first crack at a fresh shipment of wild imports. I’ll post updates in a couple days, but here’s a sneak peak before I head off to work.

      ...for a split second I thought these Guinea Laps were the ever elusive sp Dabola. Guess the search continues

      I have a 22 23 inch one i got from serge has that same exact pattern and looks like same head shape.

      Yea Dabola seems us in the US have to keep looking I pretty much have moved on from my search to much effort to much cash offered to little response from the man that can get them.

      I think Monster Aquarium will be a force to be reckoned with in that part of the world. Now if I could just get my hands on a congicus we’ll be in business. Then maybe I’ll set my sights on a platinum endli.
