    My other passion...monster fish!

    Hi all I just wanted to share some pictures of my other passion. Monster fish keeping. I currently own a red tailed catfish which with right care can reach 5' easy. I have a planiceps catfish who also can reach that size or larger. And last I have a red belly pacu which can get to about 2'. I am building a heated indoor pond for them so they wont be kept cramped for long. without further adieu my fish!

    Muffy...my planicep


    Milton....my red tailed catfish


    I don't have any good pictures of my pacu (Gertrude) but I will try to get some...

    PS the pond is a 8x8x3 and is going in my bedroom.

    I had a red tail that would eat everything. Even ate a fish the same size as him. He's about 3ft now at the pet store I used to work at. They've got a tank of big fish and had to put bigger fish in the tank because it was eating everything.

    Cool looking fish! I'm seriously considering a pond. I love snakeheads too. I used to keep piranha but lost them in a week long power outage a few years ago. It hurt so bad I kept my tank dry for a year! Here's the new occupant



    Regards,

    Re: My other passion...monster fish!

    I'm big time into Tropical Fish as well, but currently don't have a tank running. I love the monsters! I go on Monster Fish Keepers and just drool at all of the cool fish. Cool rtc... any updated shots of it?
