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 .

      I know the type of people you cannot tell them anything they allready “know” everything. It sounds like to me that you do not live on your own and while you’re under your parents roof you’ll have to follow their rules until you can move out... I would suggest getting into smaller species of fish if you can’t have a big tank then you do not need to keep monster fish in small tanks.

      I made another thread about getting fish that actually fits in my fiberglass tub, so check it out if you don't mind. My mother is very nice and will allow me to have bigger tubs to house the fish, the problem is my father is the one setting them up for me. Yes this is embarrassing and because of his point of view, well pretty much i can't get bigger tubs since i'll have to get this approval to do so. Once again, embarrassing

      Honestly looks like your stuck until your on your own. Keep what your able. Save up your money and when you get out on your own do what you want.

      Just a quick Google of truth about stunting and your fish

      You can lead a horse to water....but you can't drown it? Something like that

      Don't be afraid of malevolent people and don't be afraid to ask questions. If you're telling the truth you have no reason to fear what some people may say. If someone does criticize you, don't take it personally. If what they're saying is true, recognize that and implement it into your life. If anything, constructive criticism should warrant gratitude, not fear.

      Hello; may I ask why you are not able to set up the tank/tubs yourself? Young age, physical limitations or simply you have to get permission.

      This entire thread hurts my brain, and has lowered my opinion of humanity in general.

      And further:

      1. Don't call out your parents, especially on the internet. Show some respect.
      2. To everyone replying that your dad is stupid, etc - you show some respect as well.

      Maybe I'm just starting to get old and irritable...

      Guys remember this member is 13. There isn't much you can do honestly except wait until you are an adult which will feel like forever but one day you will be there. Just make sure you come back and quote this post for me in five years ;)
