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 .

      It looks like an air bubble on top of my datnoid's eye lense. What should I do or what kind of medicine should I use to treat it? The temperature is at 78.2F and I do daily water change.

      Please help! thanks :nilly:

      increase water changes, add salt, and up the temp...i dont think you need any meds for this because it looks like you caught the eye problem early. I had an indo with the same eye problem and it healed up fine


      good luck... and keep us posted =]

      This is what happen

      1) Air bubbles begin to stick onto the eye (bubbles from the filter)
      2) The fish scratches itself on the bottom of the tank (barebottom tank)
      3) More air bubbles sticking onto the surface of the lense
      4) A large clear lump appear in which it looks like an air bubble on the surface of the lense
      5) the lump starting to turn into opague (Yesterday)
      6) the eye starting to turn opague
      7) the lump partially disappear and the eye becomes cloudy

      I changed my water everyday (around 10-20%), I added jungle and aqua-sol before...

      The temperature is at 26 to 26.5 celsius, thats around 78 - 79.2 F

      The tank starts out as green water > light green (water change) > light yellow (medication / jungle / water change) > deep yellow > light yellow (water change) > light green > light yellow (water change) > light yellow (water change) > light yellow (aqua-sol / yesterday)
