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.

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 .

      Think I just found a new oddball for my aquarium! Is this a schooling species or can one live singly?

      I haven't been able to find a lot of info on that to be honest but from the info I've gathered, taking care of them, and fish similar to them id say the don't mind being near each other nor shoaling but I wouldn't say they school, I've had ones separated from others that abandon tank into the next tank over and they do just as well. If I were buying them though to bring home and I had the room I'd probably like to have 3 together though, super neat fish in my opinion!!
