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 .

      Numerous times, I agree @krichardson@krichardson, youre not going on a date with them. You are doing a business transaction, the only things that matter are the price and product.

      I routinely have to work with clients I consider bad people. Don't treat them any different then my favorite clients because at the end of the day, money is money and making decisions based on anything other then what benefits it the most is dump.

      I luckily haven't had the issue with buying fish and shading my relationship with my pets. I have met my fair share of people I would rather not have met though. The place we used to live gave me this sensation. I've had this issue at places of work... I used to carry the mentality of respecting what others may be going through and I was at peace of mind with knowing that people are like garbage trucks and look for places to dump. However, I've reached a point in my career that understanding wasn't the key to success that was necessary to achieve goals. I started to show less and less until zero tolerance was shown. Truthfully people need to get over themselves and be an adult. Life will put you down and keep you down if you let it. My advice is buy that fish if you want it. Don't if you don't. He doesn't need a good review from you and you sure don't need to promote his business. If this is a purchase in person, tell him to his face he missed out on business. You might see a better person in the future. This is what real community building and strengthening is.

      It's all just business, if they have what you want at a price you thinks fair then what does it matter. One lost sale isn't going to turn someone's personality around one way or the other.
      I work in sales and don't like some of my customers and am sure some of my customers dislike me but its all just business, no ones getting shafted and everyone is making $ so do the deal, shake hands and go about your day.
