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 .

      This morning when I woke up to feed the fish all was perfectly normal, Came back a few hours later and my betta and possibly one of the female guppies I believe have suddenly developed this infection.
      It is a 30g with live plants, the temperature is at 84*F. Ammonia, Nitrites are zero ppm and the nitrates are 25 ppm, the PH is at ~6.8 I have the API liquid test kit. This aquarium is approx. 2 months old, I had a 10 gallon set up which I tore down when I purchased this aquarium and all the sand plants and inhabitants were moved from there to the 30g. There are corys, black and regular kuhlis, a few guppies and some swords (they are being moved to the 80g once this is fixed) and my one male betta. The last WC was 2 days ago and it was approx 50%, We do a WC 3 or more times a week. 004.JPG 001.JPG 002.JPG 003.JPG 005.JPG
      I am going to work on better pictures in a little bit.
      Thank you for your time!
