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 .

      this is the second time my female has laid eggs, last time the male picked off all the fry before I could move them out.

      Yesterday I noticed my female was guarding eggs that were laid on the underside of a leaf, they hatched yesterday as well. The fry are clinging onto a rock next to the leaf.

      I moved the male and other female to another tank and left the female and fry in a tank to themselves!

      Fry have tiny black stripes on them, I assume camouflage.

      I can’t take very close up pictures with my crappy iPhone camera

      The fry are definitely bigger, not by much but definitely bigger compared to the first couple of pictures

      Guessing they are about a week old or just a bit older?

      I’m going out of town for three weeks on Monday for work, might be able to come home on the weekends to do water changes, I have my brother feeding all the tanks, hope everyone does well while I am away!
