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 few days ago I rescued a bunch of pond fish. I found homes for all but a few that my wife wanted to keep. We kept 3 comets about 8-10" and a 12" koi. This morning i checked on them before i went to work and say some of the comets, what looked like, eating the new pads that were sprouting out of the lilly pots.(water is still green) When i got home a few minutes ago, i checked to see if they chewed up the lillies and found hundreds of amber colored balls. i found them in all the pots, on the rocks and in the filter. I bought my first pondfish last year and they aren't even close to breeding age but the new fish are. It must be the comets because the large koi wouldnt have a mate.
      is there anything i need to do to try to ensure the survival of the offspring, whatever they are?
      Here's a pic of the pond. its about 200-300g (i'm guessing) 6'x8'. There are 4 pots of lillies and random large rocks and driftwood on the bottom. in the bottom left where the arrow is, i have a waterfall and some sand that covers the bottom. The filter runs 550gph(i know its not enough but neither is my budget right now. My stock is:
      1-koi 12"
      3 comets 8-10"
      5 koi 4-6"
      1 comet 6"
      8" pleco
      I'm about to sell 3-4 of the small koi and the small comet because of the new fish.

      Congrats! If you want them to survive, move the young. Golfish are notorius egg/fry eaters.
