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 .

      Jaymillion thanks mate

      I think it would be hard to get a smaller male to mate with her as she tests the male to see if he's strong enough to protect her fry hence the reason I lost a few males along my way.

      I've also found it hard to keep the male and female together as I was told to introduce a large male to the tank once the female was ready but I've tried to go against all odds and kept them together the whole time and fingers crossed this is my time as my females just took a little beating from my male and now there clearing a corner and are stuck to each other's sides

      I totally agree with you on the female testing males to find the best/strongest!!! That's why I was saying I should take her out of the group. There are definitely more females in the group and 1 other than the big girl also showing breeding colors. If I'm right, fingers crossed, there's a male in there slightly bigger than the smaller, breed ready, female.

      I also have a 75 gal with 2 more Red Terrors which i believe to be male and female. I just got these back from a friend I gave 6 to from the initial 16 i bought. Unfortunately he sold his big male, 1 fish jumped out the tank and the other 2 were killed. Hoping these remaining 2 settle in and breed for me too. They're still pretty shy in the new tank.
