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 .

      Don't cut. It will either heal on its own or fall off and grow back.

      A lot of people swear by salt. I have never used it. My rtc broke one of its pectoral spines and torn the fin. With good water and regular feeding it fell off and grew back in a month or so. Not to worry, yours will be ok as well. Just keep an eye out for infection.

      It always sucks when a prized fish gets injured.
