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 teacher has a aquarium and she doesn’t know as much about fish / aquarium as I do. So she said I cloud set up a tank. So we set up a 20 gallon aquarium with a top fin silenstream 10 filter (I’m getting an aqueon quiet filter 20 for her too) and an aqueon 10 watt (i think) preset heater and what I believe is a pure ****ty air pump but I don’t think that will matter (will it?) no lights and no contact with sun what so ever. Why I’m asking you here today is because the water quality is just awful. The water is Grey and there was so much ammonia we’ve gone nose blind to the smell, I have told her to do a water change but clearly she’s not doing it. I know there’s no algae because there’s no light contact basically at all. Her or I are going to get new filters because believe me their dirty. I am planning for Monday to give her my old tank filter, maybe a few supplies like polyester fibers as a filter media type thing, and on my free period on Monday I’m no doubtably going to get a water change on that tank because it stank, also I’m going to get her water tested on Monday as well as mine at my tank at my house b/c it’s getting a little bit stinky as well. Any thing to help/suggest with the crappy water quality / stench on both tanks would be great (except for the water change because I know that needs to be done) Thanks MFK community

      She's missing out on an awesome teaching tool by neglecting the tank. Glad you're there to teach the teacher lol

      And the funny thing is that she’s a science teacher so a lot of them have class pets but not this one :(

      If I were you I would see if I could get some kind of extra credit for caring for it and making it presentable. I firmly believe young people should be compensated for the work they do. Teaches them the value of their efforts.

      Guess you'll or other students will be doing water changes, sad that the teacher doesn't have the work ethic to drain a mere ten gallon setup

      Likely a bacterial bloom but couldn't say for sure without testing it.

      Pictures/ water test results would help with diagnosing the problems. Are there currently fish in the tank?
