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 .

      Hi everyone. I don't mean that the mealworms have mold on them. Mealworms are the only live food that I feed to my fish. I always gut-load them with some spinach and carrots. I went away on business for 2 days and when I came back, the oatmeal that I keep them in was moldy because the area around the tank was a little humid. The mealworms were still alive so I'm wondering if it's still safe to feed my fish or would there be a problem because of the mold? Mealworms are cheap so I have no problem getting rid of them if they might make my fish sick. Thanks, Ed.

      i would not take the chance and feed these.. just bits of the moldy oatmeal may be ingested along with the meal worm.. mold is definitly not good for fish.. and will cause sickness

      Yeah, it's better to be safe than sorry. At least mealworms are cheap and you can get them anywhere. Thanks.
