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 .

      That's not a silly question and I'm sure who but I think someone is going to get attacked sooner or later.Perhaps you could hand feed the cray in order to keep it well satisfied and it's attentions away from the other fish.

      Honestly, if anyone will get eaten, it will be him. Not sure whether those are aggressive fish (the catfish won't bother him), but if you keep everyone well fed, and give him good hiding spots, then there shouldn't be much trouble. Crayfish really only go after smaller fish (MUCH smaller then themselves), otherwise they will usually fend off other fish by waving their claws, but rarely doing any damage.

      Depending on the species of peacock you may see the crayfish end up being dinner, but overall if all the fish are well fed then it may work out. Just make sure you have ample hiding spaces for it.

      lol peacock bass LOVE inverts
      so do catfish
      and Oscars
      Since the cats on the ground I think he'd be the one to win the lobster dinner but the peacock bass might see it and steal the bigger pieces after the catfish does all the work
      and then your Oscar will pout for a week because he got left out :(
      Don't do it.

      ^ agree with the above, especialy when your cray molts he will be most vulnerable to attack...
