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.

      Just my luck. Kids were throwing sand on te beach and some of it hit the side of my head and went in my ear.
      Its in very deep, and ive tried various ways o getting it out, such as:
      Q-tips
      my index finger
      getting water in my ears and hoping that the sand will come out with the water

      but nothing has worked!
      This is so unbelievably annoying...
      Can anyone help me out?

      Amputate.

      Sorry, try a turkey baster with room temperature water, very gently. It may take a bunch of tries.

      Gentley irragate your ear with some saline solution. You can get it at any pharmacy and it's pretty cheap. Use a syringe do irrigate but DO IT GENTLEY. Don't just leave it in there because you can get a nasty infection. If you can't get it out go to the doctors. And absolutely don't shove any thing in your ear like your finger or a Q-Tip because you will only push it in further.
