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 .

      Regretfully I am having to shut down my much loved Monster Fish aquarium. It is up for sale on aquarist classified here: http://www.aquarist-classifieds.co.u...l59_262756.php

      There are lots of pictures in the link but there are also many on here from the good old days when it was my oddball tank.

      Here is a reproduction of the advert:

      Complete custom aquarium setup with optiwhite front pane (glass where the green pigment is absent to improve viewing) 239cm x 71cm x71cm or 94” x 28” x28” approximately 1200 litres / 250 Gallons with over tank Luminaire and stand. Perfect for large oddball fish such as most Peacock Bass species, Datnioides, Arowana and Tigrinus Catfish.
      This setup comes with everything you need to run a successful, large aquarium and keep unusual and demanding fish. It includes:

      Arcadia Luminaire 150cm with two Original Tropical fluorescents
      Light starter unit with fluorescent
      U4 internal filter
      3x Fluval FX5 external canister filters with media (all of which fit neatly within the stand)
      Large powerhead
      Algae Master 15 UV system modified to work with an FX5
      Large pond air compressor with six outlets
      4x Large air stones and air line
      300w heater
      4x new and unopened bags of activated carbon
      Plus spare Fluval FX5 taps and O rings, fluorescent tubes and glass covers.

      One of the glass covers for the right hand side of the aquarium is broken but would cost a very small sum to replace.
      There is also a single piece of wood surround that has warped, however it is not structural and will be very easy and cheap to replace.
      Offers over £600
