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. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      A while ago I went and grabbed solar salt, now I'm treating ich and wanted to know what it the maximum treatment for fresh water fish is, I also was wondering if I was trying to reach near salt water levels for a brackish fish what would be an application.

      looking at the sticky for salt it says:

      "Finally, a light solution of 0.01 to 0.2 percent salt may be used as a permanent treatment in recirculating systems. Such levels are quite effective in eliminating single-cell protozoans. Most fish can tolerate prolonged exposure to salt at these concentrations; however, tetras and fish that navigate by electrical field (e.g., elephant nose) should not be maintained in salt."

      ok, so what is .01 percent? What is the table spoon per gallon ratio there?

      In another post on Ich it says to do 2 teaspoons per gallon. Seems a little high for me unless dealing with cichlids.

      I use 3 tablespoons per 5 gallons. Works like a charm.
