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.

      some of these meds are quite dangerous if not used correctly for the correct problem.
      If you don't know EXACTLY what you are doing probably it is best to stay away from self-prescribing and first seek advice on this forum

      This is a great resource. Everything here can be dangerous if used improperly.

      If you read my recent post, you will find that my rays previously had the fungus, bacteria infection, bite wound, open wound, ammonia, heater, salt burns... the whole nine yards with infection. I used Binox and salt to treat them along with 15 % daily WC. Today is the 3rd day and the infection, wounds are gone. All of them are eating and seem to growing back from the infections. I use a little less than the recommended amount. I used 5 teaspoons of Binox (dose of 125G) for my 180 G pond and they worked wonder. So i suggest everyone to use about 50-60% of the suggested dose for all of these med. along with WC. GL

      Valid question, yep. I think the original post especially the external parasites category should be more specific otherwise, some will end up using the wrong meds for particular parasites/bacteria.

      Sticking this though.
