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 .

      Thanks for everyone in IDing this turtle. The original is no longer available but I found another, which leads me to a follow up question. Has anyone had any experience in keeping a pink belly sideneck turtle with large large fish (Jaguar, Oscar, Peacock Bass) all well over 12" inches? This turtle is around 5-6". I could see the turtle going after the fish or the fish bullying the turtle or everyone coexisting. Thanks again to the experts at MFK.

      I kept a misisipi map turtle with large
      featherfin catfish, Bala sharks and clown loaches. The clown loaches and Bala sharks were around 2-3 inches, I kept him with a Betta at one point and they were fine. I then sold him and got a musk turtle, he killed 8 tiger barbs in one night. It really depends on the turtle. Some turtles won’t touch tetras and some will take chuncks out of oscars. I would test him with smaller fish in a seperate tank to see.

      I have a snapper (my profile pic) that is a complete pacifist Ive kept him with many large and small fish some on purpose and some not but he is pretty good as long as he is feed well. like said by Bertie07 it depends on the turtle them self but with all that said never put a turtle in with anything you are not willing to see get ripped into tiny bits and crash the tank.
