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 .

      I happened to be visiting some family in CA last week and I went fishing with my uncle. We hooked a few ling cod and a starry flounder. One of the lings had about a fairly large isopod attached to gill, take a look.

      Yes, unfortunately I hadn't noticed until we got home and was in process of filleting but I popped it off and it immediately started crawling on cutting board. I have heard the giant Isopoda are edible but no way were going to sample this one.

      I've seen photos of big ones and wondered how well they would do in an aquarium.
