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 .

      Have had a crayfish since March, half size of my pinky now full grown, found lying on its side clinging to plant at bottom of small 35gal pond, seemingly with loss of thrust so at a loss what to do. Is it ich?

      Could it be shedding or damaged?
      What source of calcium is he getting?

      I do not know too much about crayfish, but I did not think they could get ich in like a fish does. But maybe posting a picture could help others determine what's up with it

      Died, and so did another, so my thoughts are it's a the hot temperatures stirred something up.

      Hot water could cause a drop in oxygen, something crayfish don't like

      Not sure what happened, but thanks. I checked the pH and it's fine. One thing about Florida, however, is the water's really bad in summer due to toxins from storm water.
