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 .

      I loved the polli I had it was very active and personable also don't forget the ropes they don't always get as much attention on here as the rest but they are definitely a must and should be kept in groups of atleast 3

      It was actually your Ordering Delhezis thread that was the initial spark of interest, @jaws7777@jaws7777 and others responses were so friendly and welcoming that it made the polys themselves very endearing

      Mwaaaaahaahaa (evil laugh) the poly section is on fire lol

      Lots of us start out with uper jaw then migrate towards lower jaws dont really know why lol
      Dr.b has a poly comm with mixed uj and lj so search his threads.
      It all boils down to personal oponion or tastes. I prefer lower jaws because they look more prehistoric to me. As for aggression you never know. I have had more problems with uj than lower jaws. There was a time when even my little sen was nippy.
      Glad your not put off by the ornates aggression. I love them too just takes a little tweaking and luck. Plenty of people have them and had no issues.

      If i were gonna stock a 180 i'd probably get most of them from toyin (rehobothaquatics) and would do something like this.
      Faranah endli
      Koloton
      Faranah lap
      Cb ornate
      Ansorgii (not a huge fan but everyone loves them soo...lol)
      Black volta endli
      Cb endli (love the crazy patterns but always the chance of poor genetics, worth it the gamble)
      Absolutely a congicus (my favirote poly)
      And maybe a teugelsi


      All boils down to what you like, have fun poly shopping !
