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 .

      You'd get away with the plecos and GT I reckon, not so much the acara and firemouth, you'd possible get interbreeding with the acara, if its a male then it'll get demolished, along with the firemouth

      I'm not sure if this has already been said, being I haven't read the entire thread, but a Texas would eat some of those smaller fish. I would recommend Firemouths only if you get smaller cichlids. If I were you I would just stick to small cichlids so you can have Firemouths. They're great fish.

      What? Overstocking can often lead to issues no matter how experienced you are

      A growout?
      What you cant take the fish out? If your hands are broken and you cant change water thats one thing..
      I dunno about you but I can raise a fish in a 5 gallon bucket, but I dont choose to.
