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 .

      Do stingrays shed there mucus lining, or does my ray have a fungal infection? looks like some long stringies of different parts of the body, she refused food today but remains very active as in only really settles to the bottom very briefly, before taking off to play in the current.

      Check water params. Might be worthwhile to do a large WC.

      Doesn't sound good. Check water before changes so you know where it sits. Then change water and hope for the best.

      ammonia/nitrite will stress fish out and cause that to happen, I don't know specifically with rays but other fish that are scaleless and scaled tend to do that.

      aquarium salt or sea salt (without anti-caking) from the grocery store will minimize the toxicity of nitrite poisoning and help gill function if it is indeed a spike.
