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 .

      Hi everyone! Would like to share some photos of my bichirs! They are in a 4 foot 120 right now getting used to each other. It is bare with no decor or substrate. They will be going in a 210 that I'm currently setting up.

      Stock list:
      1 x Lapradei - Koloton
      1 x Lapradei - Faranah
      1 x Lapradei - Nigerian
      1 x Endlicheri - Volta
      1 x Ornatipinnis CB
      1 x Weeksii WC
      1 x Senegalus albino

      The Volta was very aggressive before I made this "bichir soup" tank. Now it seems the Koloton is the dominant one. I have not observed biting. When I move them to the 210 I will be putting in substrate and some driftwood, maybe rocks.

      Filtration is AC110 x 2 at the moment. When they move to the 210 it will be a 75 gallon sump/algae trap and also FX6.

      Comments and suggestions welcome!

      Awesome Soup you got going on! Glad you stepped out of the wa forum for sec and to here, lol...

      What are u gonna be doing for substrate in the upcoming 210? Red or Purple garnet sand? Markings will stand out much more if you go this route. :)

      Thank you so much for this! I want to get the red garnet sand as that seems the way to go. I also saw spectrastone red but not sure how it'll look under water. Hahaha yeah, this forum is really where it's at! At WaFishBox there not too many poly freekz besides you, me and @DMD123@DMD123 on there!
