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 .

      Ahh I just built a house in ulster county last week. I’m originally from Orange County(walker valley) but I moved to Warwick. I’m building my house in Sullivan county(still walker valley). Walker valley is one of those wierd places where you drive 3 mins up the road your in ulster and 3 mins down the road the other way your in orange and Sullivan is right there too

      I lived in nyc for five years and used to know New York by the fish stores. Beital’s has some interesting fish at times but the guy who runs it was always nasty and would change prices listed on tanks almost every time I asked about a fish.

      I miss the store in your area so much better than where I am now. Aqua hut on Long Island had nice selection and excellent prices. There were several other stores on Long Island that had great fish as well. One in particular had stuff that no one could get but prices were heavy. I’d go to look. Can’t recall the name.

      Monster aquarium didn’t exist when I lived there 6 years ago. If I lived there, I’d check them out given there Facebook page. I miss having other like minded hobbyists in the area. The Seattle area is full of plant enthusiasts and very few who care about fish and especially exotic interesting stuff.

      The guy at Beitals makes me laugh everytime I'm there. carries some great stock from time to time.
      Absolutely fish is over rated and over priced. Also they hire absolute morons.
      Fish hut is average.
      Monster aquarium in queens is by far the best shop for exotics in the area.


      Get together with the NJ guys. Everything i know came from them. Great group of guys

      Beitals owner is a tough one but the fish he gets are great. So if you know what you are buying you will be fine. If looking for advice that’s a different story lol
