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 think I am content with seeing the alligator gars in the river. The ones in the river near my house are huge and for the most part ignore people. If you are just chilling out in the water sometime you can see them in the water with you, definitely a laid back fish. It is nice that they destroy fishing tackle and are so bony they are not worth eating. I think if that was not the case then they would be critically endangered by now like so many large fish are.


      Also for those that are curios about that little eel looking fish on the graph, don't google it. Just a bunch of gross pictures. It seems this fish is the one that crawled in a man's penis ,and the surgery is all over google xD

      I was just discussing this yesterday at work. Why are Pacus, Ret Tailed Catfish (and most other catfish) available for sale at Pet(insert generic big pet store suffix here) for $3.99?

      For people saying "I have a (insert giant fish name here), what's my plan?"...

      If you don't have a plan to build a large pond, start contacting commercial and public aquariums, zoos, other MFKers and the like ASAP. Don't wait until they are too big to safely transport.

      Oh wow some of those ate real monsters. I showed my husband and now he gets why I check what size a fish I'm interested in will get with a measuring tape next to me. I try to not go for fish that go over 15cm for my 50g. But one day I want a black ghost knife fish and common pleco but not yet.

      Yes, RTCs should, imho, NOT be sold to unaware consumers. I almost bought a Shovelnose, until I found out just how large they get! I do have a Tire Track Eel, and actually had 2 at one point (male & larger female), so I know what I'm dealing with with them. Now I only have my (new) Tire Track, a Fire Eel, and my large (~18+") pleco in my 90gal tall. We wanted to upgrade to a 125gal when we got the new tank (old 90gal was ~18yrs old!), but didn't have the room for it :(
