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 .

      Hello MFK,
      Wanted to share my newest project, and my first attempt at an "iwagumi" aquascape. I have always admired these ADA-style planted tanks, but had never had the right equipment to attempt it. So here's my first shot. Just filled it with water yesterday, did a dry-start for about one month. Planning on only keeping shrimp and plants in this tank, have yet to get any shrimps.

      Specs:
      Tank: Aquatop 6.5g long high clarity glass (24"x6.75"x9.5")
      Light: Chihiros A-series LED
      Filter: Dennerle Eckfilter Nano with Babyprotect attachment
      Substrate: Fluval Stratum
      CO2: Fluval 20g Pressurized system. Rhinox drop checker
      Plants: Monte Carlo and pygmy swords
      Rocks: "dragon stone"

      Yeah, they arent super expensive and are supposed to yield good results, just not sure how long the lights themselves actually last compared to other LED setups these days...
