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 .

      For June end of the month voting:

      This is in addition to his nomination for Notable Contributor. @Dieselhybrid@Dieselhybrid recently created one of the best scientific threads I have seen in quite some time. He recently had the unfortunate loss of a larger female Potamotrygon ray. He used this sad opportunity to expand the overall knowledge base of the community by performing a journalistic autopsy of his ray, and shared the results with us. The scope and quality of this thread deserves individual recognition in my opinion. Should the community agree and vote to support this, I would be honored to award him with an Achievement Award. :)

      The thread in question:

      Long overdue MFK. This guy is making waves in the hobby (pun intended), and has a great deal to offer anyone that needs a hand. That disection must have been really tough for him to do, but I know for a fact he did it for the community here.

      So in other words - agreed.

      Thank you everyone for the recognition and consideration. It's truly an honor. I'm pleased that such a tragic and emotionally draining loss has been able to benefit others and help enrich our cumulative knowledge base. It's rewarding to have an opportunity to give back to the place that has helped us so much over the years.
