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 .

      Hello.
      I bought 4 aquariums in a rack, i got a loot of endlers with the tank, and shrimp, other fish, plants, snails ++
      So when i got these home (with a little water in the car ride, because 300 shrimps and 50 endlers new born is hard to catch) XD

      And i set up al the tanks slowly and everything lived.

      The next day i rearranged some of the fish, i gathered al the endlers in one tank.
      And some days later i saw 2 new borns in the shrimp tank, really! new borns! just head and tail, and so smal.
      I thought "o weel il just move them when they get older, no need to rush they wont harm the shrimp"
      And some weeks after i say "hey they will be females, then i can give them a nice male and start a new line"
      Now many more weeks later, i am looking for a nice male.
      and they are only 2 fish in the aquarium, and now i see 1 is pregnant! how can she be pregnant?
      She was seperatet from the group before sexual maturity, as an new born :O

      the other one as expected is not pregnant :)

      I've had fish for over 10 years, i know how a new born endler look like O:)

      haahhhhaha agreed.
      I Have a theory... since there was like 50+ endlers i moved, maybe a little young male was in there i did not see him and he died and was eaten by the shrimps before i realised it was 3 babies in there?
      And he only was quick enough to make 1 of the 2 females pregnant? ^^,

      but in theory, a female baby can not get pregnant if there is no male.

      How do you make lines that you like to keep breeding faster?
      I have in my group, males with red and blue, and ones with only blue (yes i know its a hybrid not a true endler).
      I want to make the blue ones :)
      Al males that show red i put in a male only tank ore give\sell.

      I'm pretty sure guppies and all that can be gravid even without a male, but I may be wrong.
