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 .

      A couple weeks ago, my computer got fried by a lightning strike, and I've lost all my archived data from the last nine years, to include the credentials for the server to get the pics for the contests.

      I've been trying to recover my computer to get back to work, but it is becoming increasingly clear that doing so is not feasible, and I don't have a the funds right now to just go buy another. I apologize for the tremendous inconvenience this causes for all of you. I will still run every contest once I regain my ability to navigate the internet through a computer, which is quite frankly the only way I know how to administrate the contests. Keep sending your pics. I will sort them by date as and enter them into the appropriate contest bracket, and run the contests sequentially once I have the ability to do so again.

      Again, I apologise for the blackout.

      Thank you.

      Well I bought a new laptop, but I have utterly failed at recovering my data from the old one. I've lost everything: all of my archived *OTM pictures, nine years of photos from my work in the hobby, tons of research for the nature preserve I own, etc. What hurts the most is that I completely lost all the little files I used to make the awards here. They're simple, but creating things like that from scratch is a surprising amount of work. I had redundancy in my system, but not externally. I couldn't recover when my redundancy got fried with the main drive.

      So, that being said, I'm forced to start back at square one with this. I'm considering making a Gmail account for the contests so that if for whatever reason I don't have my computer, I can get into the email on my phone.

      Needless to say, with the loss of data, the August and September contests aren't going to happen now. I'll send out a mass blast updating people once I decide how to handle the emails.

      Thanks for your cooperation,

      Rob
