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 .

      Thanks Lupin. Also, I was just thinking that maybe we should put the words (Red Tailed Catfish) into the title in parenthesis as many who are new here are not familiar with the acronmys.

      Awesome, glad this could be a sticky. I also am aware they will live longer than 15 years, that's why I put 15+.

      I saw a few 3" RTC's at the LFS a few days ago. Damn I was so tempted to get one. They are awesome. But I can't accommodate it unfortunately. Oh well.... maybe one day..

      Yes, there are loads of fish like the bumblebee and other Pictus that are much smaller and have loads of character...no need for DWARF RTC.

      Totally agree with the nature of the thread and everyone that says only buy the fish WHEN you have the big tank.

      Just my words
      I really want one, i had 5 together (om 10cm) but the dealer who sold them to me said they get big, but it takes long time... Originally he got them back and they are now in at wery big tank in his showroom. This was 1 year ago (10cm) now they are aprox 150cm+ ...

      I love theese redtail, but really.. im only getting one the day that i get Arapiama´s .. which is probberly never going to happen.

      Thanks for the read.
