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 just wanted to show the glow-up pictures of my Indonesian white (ghost) ribbon eel. Careen.

      Sometimes you just know when an animal needs to be removed from a bad situation. He was severely underweight for his length when I first retrieved him, and I was worried he was stunted. I am so happy that the recovery was successful.

      (The kink in his jaw went away with antibiotics and careful monitoring. Apparently it was a dislocation that did not reset as it should - common in young morays. Once he put on weight, it shifted back into place and the swelling vanished within a week.) He has now grown from 16 to 22 inches. Happy little Juvie/Adolescent.

      Nice! Loving how the naturalistic setup is doing!
      So I expect the move went easy?

      Thanks! Actually the move is slotted for the end of September so it is coming up!!! - but we have done a TON of prep work so far and Careen here is getting a new 80g+ system! I'll keep everyone updated when the time comes, but I really wanted to share his progress.

      I am also really glad you like the natural look. I prefer biotopes in all of my builds and it keeps the water quality WAY cleaner than just your typical pristine rock and sand look.

      Definitely agree! Nature does a great job of cleaning up the water, for example a single oyster can filter 50-80 gallons easily, and that's a small to regular size one, since oysters are basically immortal and grow their whole lives they can continue to grow to over 3 feet. (Sorry for random derail).

      Ha! I honestly appreciated the derail - Now I gotta read more about that.
