 They  are  indeed  very  nice  fish  too  keep  i  had  around  6  of  them  in  group  later  1  of  them  really  grew  big  and  started  chasing  others  .  So  gave  them  away  and  they  also  need  brakish  water  as  they  grow.

 Mono  are  saltwater  fish.  The  juvies  are  spawned  in  brackish  water  and  can  be  adapted  to  live  in  fresh  water  but  one  fully  grown  will  require  full  strength  saltwater.  Unless  you  can  cater  to  this  I  would  not  suggest  you  keep  em.

 Yes.......I  had.........very  beutiful  fish......I  kept  them  with  community  tank......and  lastly  I  set  a  tank  for  them.......in  a  26"x18"x18"  tank  I  kept  14  Mono  Angel  in  freshwater.........with  some  decor  like  dead  corals  etc........with  blue  light........It's  looks  excelent  ......and  they  always  move  in  group  which  also  looks  brilliant.....after  having  3"  size  I  have  to  give  them  due  to  space  problem...  Sad  .......
 
 But  one  thing  I  am  sure  I  never  use  salt  water  niether  I  add  salt  in  tank  water.  I  always  kept  them  in   freshwater.  Never  face  any  problem.  (From  my  personal  experience)

 Abhis  I  think  they  need  high  density  water  beyond  4  thanks  for  sharing  your  experience
 
 @Rocky  can  you  share   your  experience  in  terms  of  maintaining  esturian  type  of  water  for  these  fish

 Hi  Emmanuel,
 
 I  don't  think  so  they  eally  need  high  density  water  ..........I  kept  the  normal  fresh  water  where  ph  level  is  7.2  to  7.8  max.  Also  Kolkata  municipal  water  is  quiet  soft  water.........no  issue  at  all.........
 
 May  be  I  am  wrong  ........but  it's  from  my  3  yrs.  exp.  with  Mono  Angel..........one  of  my  favourite  fish....

 I  never  have  been  able  to  keep  them  successfully.Bought  a  couple  of  them  way  back  in  2009.Kept  them  in  freshwater.They  were  so  active  and  agile  for  the  first  few  days.Then  one  fine  morning,  i  found  them  dead.Never  kept  them  after  that.
 A  very  beautiful  fish  indeed.A  large  group  would  look  stunning..

 You  could  set  up  a  Mangrove  Bio-tope  tank  for  monos...  They  would  be  happy  in  a  Brackish  tank.
 
 You  might  find  some  biotope  pics  here.

 I  used  to  keep  them  in  a  large  group  of  12  and  the  tank  size  was  3ft.  They  were  fine  and  the  setup  was  also  had  few  scats  and  and  few  other  puffers  but  the  setup  was  done  by  one  of  my  friend  who  had  a  LFS.
 He  used  to  add  salt  (probably  Red  sea  salt  if  i  can  remember  it  faintly!!!)  every  time  we  change  some  25%  of  the  water.  They  were  a  visual  delight  to  watch  in  a  group  and  with  the  other  semi  marine  fishes.
 
 Later  I  understood  it  was  a  brackish  water  setup  but  they  stayed  there  for  long  time.
