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 .

      The platinums are pretty slow growing as well but tonight I saw the first signs of the fish maturing, they started tail slapping and lip locking. Currently just setting up dominance but a good sign that they are healthy and progressing. I've also noticed they are more finique eaters than the golds or the wilds. Those types go after everything in the tank where the platinums will take flake food unenthusiasticly but when frozen brine shrimp or mysis shrimp are dropped in the tank they can't get enough.

      Hi, sorry for the hijack, will my gold male X with a normal give only gold genes?

      Not a problem. Yes in theory you will get 100% gold gene fry, you would then need to cross them to another gold gene or a gold jack Dempsey if you were to want more gold jacks. I say in theory because in practice yankeejack has a thread where he had a gold cross with a blue and they somehow produced a single gold jack.

      That's interesting, maybe one had a hidden gold or blue gene then?
      So GG X GG will give what percentage gold by chance?

      The punnett square shows that you would have 25% gold.

      The gold pair laid last night. So much for letting everything settle in easily to the fishroom.
