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 .

      Had these two together for a few days, but the female laid eggs today on her side of the divider with filters on:(. Took out the divider and they started to fight so I place the divider back in rotated the eggs to the males side.... let see what happens ...

      Check your caps lock lol

      You will know soon if they are fertile or not. But from what you've described I wouldn't count on the male doin his job without them being a bonded pair. I hope I'm wrong. Good luck, keep us posted

      As more and more of the eggs began to turn white my hopes faded... I actually gave up on it, but left it as is... Today when I checked it in the evening at a glance I thought it was all over....Then I took a very very close look and there they were 4 FRY wiggling!!! :) Now I know my Male Flowerhorn(whatever breed he is) is FERTILE and so is the female(a given). Next time I will be home to release them together :)
