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 .

      So I’ve come to the conclusion that my male Texas cichlid is infertile or he’s really,really dumb. He constantly tries to mate with my female but by the next day the eggs (which are infertile) are gone.
      Anyway here’s some pics.
      Male is 7.5-8 inches.
      Female is 5 inches.

      Very nice fish, my male was just as dumb,
      had a couple of batches and one day decided the female would be a punching bag
      RIP Misses Texas

      Same here. Most are hybrids or caprintis (not that caprintis is bad). It’s just you don’t see people keeping them often.
      Really nice fish OP.

      Fish in first and last pic, looks like it might be a hybrid to me. If that is the infertile fish, that may explain it.
      Very nice looking fish though.

      Nope that’s the female. The male is the larger one.

      Ease off the pellets for a bit, it sometimes messes with fertility, krill,earthworms,silversides and crickets all good before breeding
