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 .

      My catfish is hurt. She was being moved from my old pond to a holding tank and struggled bad in the net and the rocks and stuff and got hurt. She got this a few weeks ago and it hasn't healed. Due to me having to destroy my pond (its in my parents back garden and they are trying to sell the house now so it had to go) my poor fish all had to be taken out. I am moving to a new place soon that has a very large pond for them all but that is 2 weeks away or so. I just don't want her to die of infection...She seems to be eating normally, or at least her belly looks round and she is swimming around normally.

      Attaching pictures...as you can see the poor girl is really roughed up. I don't know if I should do antibiotics (last time i tried that in a tank I had a fish die off and the time before that I had a major plant die off. ) or just keep the water changed up till the move and see how things go...my worry is that it doesn't seem to be getting better.

      Edit: The pictures don't attach, it says they are too large...sorry

      Would keep water clean. Can always dab the areas with some methylene blue. Add salt at 1 tsp per g (one time). Post pics when able.
