Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

Welcome to

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 .

      You never really "replace" them. Each one is its own individual. But you can try again with another one and give it the best possible care.

      If misery loves company, I just screwed up bad and lost my 8 inch juvenile Arowana to a pair of baby convict cichlids less than 2 inches long. I had temporarily stashed them in there while I built their tank. They paired up (yes, as babies) decided to start a family and promptly gutted my beautiful Zephyr, attacking him from below.

      Now that was a painful learning experience. And now the new one gets its very own nursery tank until it's so big nothing will mess with it. Think bubble wrap, armed guards and concertina wire.

      Point being, we all make mistakes and it hurts every single time. But don't let it put you off enjoying another JD.

      Sorry for your loss. We all know how it feels but just learn from your mistakes and use it to better the lives of future fish. I lost a beautiful green terror and baby dovii from not having lids on a tank. They were both gifts from my parents( they knew I wanted them and I was fully prepared). So it hurt even more when they died but now all my tanks are covered and protected. Best of luck!
