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 .

      Came in as a "zebra knife". I went to get it assuming it was a gymnotus Pedanopterus. I am told it is wild. It kinda looks like a gymnotus javari. I am not a pro knife guy when it comes to these oddballs. I have only ever seen one zebra in person before. 20170909_204421.jpg 20170909_204513.jpg 20170909_204531.jpg 20170909_204630.jpg 20170909_204635.jpg

      Thanks for the confirm. Any info on the javari? Should I go with the same care/max size as the penanopters?
