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 .

      Hi Folks,

      I'm announcing a contest hosted by myself. I'm looking for articles reflecting the Monster Fish keeping hobby. Here are the rules (which may be adjusted, as required):

      1) Original writings and pics are preferred. If other people's work/pic is included please provide the appropriate credit to the originator of said work/pic.

      2) Please post to the proper forum and post the final work, with pics/drawings/illustrations, etc., in the OP (Opening Post).

      3) Pic-only threads will not be considered. I'm looking for write-ups of breeding/growth/natural-aquascaping projects, taxonomic/synoptic writings,etc.

      4) All eligible articles must be from today's date and onward. Articles written prior to this date are excluded (but, many thanks for them).

      5) Shoot me a PM of your entry, when completed, so I may review the article. Please include your mailing name and address in the PM.

      6) Entry deadline is midnight April 30th-ish. In truth, it's when I run out of prize packages.



      For your efforts, I will reward you with a postage-paid Prize Package consisting of:
      1. 2 MFK Aquarium decals.
      2. 2 MFK Post Cards.
      3. And, 2 MFK Pin-Back Buttons.



      This contest is open to ALL MFK members. (Yes, I will pay for International Shipping, too).

      Let the Contest Begin!!!

      I like to write but I'm still new to the hobby so the requisite articles are a little to advanced for me. :(

      Now fish related short stories and poems, I could do. :)

      How about a step-by-step on how you draw a fish art piece? I'm certain more folks than myself would be interested.

      That could work. We had a thread on writing fish-related haiku poems.

      I just looked up the link and re-discovered that I won that contest. Forgot all about it.

      My haiku:
      11. Live Feeder Day

      Crowded fish, now free!!
      What's moving closer to me?
      Light's gone dark, can't see.

      Here'sthe link:
