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 .

      the hybrid is mostly dead, but there is a slim chance it will come back. bigger aros were 17-18", smaller aros were 13-14" and the tsn was 21"

      thanks

      thanks, and i have no idea.

      i don't know if one of the catfish vomited and messed the water up or if my dumb ass apartment people used a pestaside in the apartiment and it got on my cleaning hose or what. i got home at midnight and everything was same as usual. then my brother got up at 6am and all the aros were dead. by 8am when i woke up(he didn't wake me up for an unknown reason) my tsn was dead and the hybrid was mostly dead.

      all the filters were going, no stray currents, plenty of flow for oxygen. i changed out all the tanks yesterday except this one and just cleaned some turds off the bottom till i got prime today. then this, i am just lost as to how this could have happened.

      it was an 8-10" pleco. it has eaten larger meals before with out issue and this was just eaten day before yesterday.

      no mistake on my part the nitrate was at 25ppm last night everything else was perfict! i do bi weekly wc at 75% and i have hydroponics so the nitrate never gets above 30ppm. 99% of the time the nitrate is at no more then 20ppm, it only gets higher then 20ppm if i feed just before i go to sleep and there is extra on the bottom that they didn't eat. i am not new to fish keeping.

      thanks

      thanks, see the reply to brians post for my ideas.
