Get Your MonsterFishKeepers Cap

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 .

      Sounds like internal parasites. Would do some Epsom salt 1 tbsp per 5g. Add some metronidazole to the tank. Feed some metroplex in a epsom salt solution(3/4 cup Epsom salt and 1/2 cup distilled water). Can use seachem focus to mix the medicated food and water.

      Should be 3/4 tsp and 1/2 cup for the Epsom salt solution.
