Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

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 .

      Thanks for the nice comment. They are currently in a 5'x2'x2'. Should be setting up my 6'x2.5'x2.5' in several weeks. Plan on dividing the stock between both tanks. But we will see.

      Thank you! :)

      Yes there is a koloton. I'm not sure. I haven't had it for too long yet. I don't think this one will grow much though.

      Appetite isn't as large as the other polys. Still gets a belly after feeding but it's not the monster appetite.
