Hi all, I was just wondering what exactly a "monster fish" is? How big does a fish need to be to be considered a monster fish? Or perhaps the question is how small could it be...?

My understanding is that if a fish will grow over about 10" it could be a monster.
If it is still on the small side though I think it would be refered to as a "junior monster"

I'd say a fish that is at least 12"+ when full grown,

Or a fish that requires a tank that's 6'x18" at the smallest.

Doesn't really matter if it's 1" or smaller or 2 feet or more. Definition of a monster fish is a certain type of fish that is something out of ordinary or oddball. Any type of fish can be considered a monster fish, is just up to the certain hobbyist if he/she wants to call their fish a monster.

I consider fish over 2 feet (24") as being monsters.
