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 .

      Thank you much for posting.

      Is this Ariberto and his famous 40" GATF? (For some reason I thought Ariberto's pond / pool was smaller.

      Nope, this is someone else. This is a much larger tank.

      Thanks. So my hunch was right. IIRC, Ariberto's pond is ~1/4 of this one.

      Anyhow, do we know the size and age of this GATF?

      Don’t know age. He has 5 and they range from 31-35in. He has had them for two years but got them from the 21-25in range from a friend.

      So it looks like the tank is 40,000g. Apparently he used to have a freshwater bull shark. Couple more pics.
