What do you in england categorice as Monsterfish ?? Here in sweden most species who grow big and are a bit aggressive, they call monsterfishes. Most of my fishes goes under that category.

Flower-Horns, Oscars, Piranhas, Catfishes (not the "L-Cats") even my other hybreds goes as monsters .

Later on today, my deleivers of "real monsters" come :) That will be several Eel's and 2 snakeheads :)

i would say definitely the catfish like the salmontail, maybe arrowanas, those datnoids......maybe people who have the requirements to still have some of the big gars......ummm I dont know lol

I'd say we aussies are restricted by what we can legally keep in comparison to other countries.

Well, if you live in australia i undersatnd that you se "monsterfishes" in other ways then we, specially here in scandinavia, does. In australia you have real monsters, horrormonsters in your lakes and rivers ;) I personally would love to find the money to go to australia and dive there, that's a dream I'we had since I was a little girl :)

But is it forbidden to have big fishes as Snakeheads, Gars, arowanas etc. i aquariums in australia ??

Aquamonster - we have a list of fish that are classed as noxious and therefor aren't legally imported in Australia or allowed to be kept - snake-heads and piranha fall into this category..

Other fish (eg. Asian arowana) fall into a different category - grey imports - Technically they are allowed to be kept but they are not on the allowable import list - so if they are here, they are illegally imported

These lists seem to be revised everytime someone farts so what we can legally keep is getting reduced all the time :(

hope that makes some sense of it for you...
