Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

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 .

      Dr. Ako! I know him, he wrote me a job reference for the finfish hatchery at the Oceanic Institute. He is an old expert in the aquaculture industry, and a good source of fish related advice.

      Oddball is da man! Wonderful post! i've been looking for this info a long time. Local shipping practices have always seemed haphazard and error-prone if you ask me. Your info would help establish a great standard to adopt right away.

      I hope to one day post some info on our experience upgrading the shipping process, and maybe even contribute some new finding or techniques. :headbang2
