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 was looking through some old photos and found a pic of my FH when he was younger. I compared it to him right now and I’m just thinking. Wtf happened. He is maybe just getting older idk I still love him. I’ve always maintained Good water quality. I took a small break from the hobby the last two years and only fed him a mix of pellets and the occasional shrimp. I’m completely obsessed and invested again. Anyways these pics are about 3 years ago -> current pics. Someone said he was trash but I guess the quality decline went unnoticed to me until now. He lives in a 150 gal. Bottom are 3 years ago. Also new account.

      Camera, exposure, color balance, lighting etc makes a huge difference.

      Wow, he looked amazing 3 years ago! Still impressive now IMO. Do Flowerhorns usually dull in color a few years down the line?

      I guess he is around three and a half years old.Prime of a flowerhorn imo is between 1 and 2 years old of age.So we can say he got older a bit and his colors got paler too.Still nice fish and with color pellets he can regain his color.

      By the way red dragons get old quick.When they pass 2 years they generally get dropped tails and full open mouths.So it is a bit normal for your fish to get uglier
