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 .

      My Flowerhorn has a whitish spot on one of his bottom fins, he had it when I got him but it wasn’t as big. He hasn’t got any white spots anywhere else so I don’t think it’s ich. Water perimeters are all fine and the fish doesn’t look unwell. Any ideas what it could be? And how I could treat it?

      Could be lymphocytosis. Can you get a side pic? If so needs to be monitored and will go away on it’s own. Should qt the fish so not to spread to other fish. Monitor for any changes in the spot and fish behavior.

      Keep it water clean.

      Thank you for the reply! I looked up lymphocytosis online and it does sound like that, I got him through the post so he was really stressed out for a few days.. he still is abit jumpy. I am keeping ontop of the water quality and keeping an eye on the white spot also.. so do I just need to keep his stress levels down as much as possible? Keeping the light off etc? Will it eventually drop off? And here is the other picture.

      Lymphocystis will eventually go away. Keep the lights above the tank off, and just use natural room light.
