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 had a friend that fed live until one of the rats killed his big female breeder ball python and so switched to fresh killed and frozen thawed. he kills the rats with a blow to the head/neck. live tend to be a dollar or more expensive then frozen. my recommendation is just buy a snake that is feeding on frozen to begin with you will have an overall better experience.

      Flame garter snake pair,feed them bits of fish and earthworms every few days,I kept mine in a tank with cypress bark substrate,as long as humidity is low and they have a heat source they r pretty hardy and easy to handle.

      She and honestly just bought as "fancy" which means we got a good deal. But she has so much orange in her, and is much brighter than most normal pastels I've seen, so my bet is super pastel.

      She's a beauty! I just got my first snake (a male butter ball python) last week as well. Unfortunately his breeder was feeding live mice, so I'm just going to have to pray that he accepts frozen thawed when I offer it for the first time, later this week.

      Very nice! Share a pic? Honestly, if you have a source for live it's not bad. If you're set on FT, make sure you have tongs to simulate movement.

      Sure. :) Yeah, I've been watching every Youtube video I can find on weaning BPs onto f/t, and I've seen that that's a common technique. I just prefer the convenience and safety of f/t.

      Here he is. I've named him Butters.
