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 .

      Echoing the sentiments posted in the previous A. labiatus thread, I've had the pleasure of importing many wild collected Amphilophus citrinellus from Nicaragua as well. Included in this thread are just a small percentage of individuals I've photographed from the vast numbers that have passed through my tanks. Hopefully some viewers of this thread still possess one or two of these beautiful beasts.
      Enjoy!

      These photo threads = 5 stars. I LOVE looking at these wild-type midas and labiatus. And those piebalds, wow! I know a lot of work and photos went into these pics, and they are much appreciated.
