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 .

      Now I'm confused.... @Polyaddict86@Polyaddict86 map shows my fish from an orange country whereas @Vancouver_98683@Vancouver_98683 map shows it from a mauve/pink country. Which is it? Pink or Orange? lol

      lol, yeah I got the whole map thing. It is just the comical nature of us all trying to figure out where these fish come from and trying to explain the names and catch locations.

      The crinkle cut fry pattern has been one of those characteristic Faranah lap traits.

      @Vancouver_98683@Vancouver_98683 can explaine it more than me.

      Lol this never goes away hahhaa
      A lap labelled faranah guinea and a lap labelled faranah are the samething. Which is what all of us have toyin explained it was just how hi distributors labelled them at different times of delivery. Polyaddict hast two one with crinkles like mine and one with patterns like dmd. All are the same fish though

      A lap lebelled guinea (the country) could very well be different since their is no smaller collection point so to say.

      Put aside the Faranah label for a short minute. Our Lap species is so complex.

      I'm gonna put my photo and DMD123 Laps from Guinea versus 8 known faranah laps out of many. They're just different visually from marking style, headshape, and even smaller finlets than mine and DMD. Just my observation.

      20170202_140700.png click.jpg

      Faranah Laps - 8 examples below. Many more otherd consistent to looking like these. Don't force me to make more collages, lol.... There's just too many that look like these.
