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 .

      Hello friends,

      My bonsai flowerhorn (picture attached) was recovering from bacterial infection/swim bladder disorder when I suddenly noticed that she has white spots near her lower fins (the fins that are near the belly .. kind of legs' position for human. I don't know what these fins are called). Can you please take a look at her fins, especially the joint portion where the fins touch the tummy? Do you see white spots? Is it ich or some other parasite or may be nothing?

      Please note that the temperature is 30 degrees, and she was on Terramycin last week, followed by a 3 days course of Flagyl. Right now, she is laying down on one side. I have already started the treatment with 10 table spoons of rock salt for 15G tank.

      Appreciate your help.
