Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

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 .

      The big one is the clear alpha of the group and the others don’t want to challenge him, so he doesn’t have to prove himself. Once in a while my crenicichla venezuela shoos them away but they don’t want any part of him and every other fish jusy minds their own business.

      Your lucky to have them fall in order like that. My group don't care on size. I have small dats strike my biggest without thinking twice and he’s a lot bigger then them. Your pike is probably the real alpha and that’s probably why my small guys do what they do cause my pikes rule them.

      Oddly,or maybe not lol, my biggest indo in my group of four is the most moody and timid of them.There are days when it will sulk in a corner and will then move out to eat the falling pellets with the others only to allow itself to be pushed and shoved aside by the smaller dats as they snap up the food
      I dont get much squabbling out of them and that might be due them being together for so long.One of them does have a "v" shaped tail fin due to some long ago fight with one of the others.The fin seems to have healed that way and will probably remain so.
