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 .

They look kinda like pimples. My greenie had one on his side for the last week or so with no symptoms other than the lump but today when I checked on him I noticed this new red lump. None of the other fish show anything like them and they’ve all been together for nearly a year. I am slightly worried about the redness in the lump, it’s not like the other previous lumps. If anyone has any ideas as to what is causing this I’d really like to know so I can try to stop it from happening.

      I have no ideal as can be allot of things, parasite to bacterial to virus. sense more than one experiencing can rule out a cancer. If viral nothing for it, keep fish stress free and water pristine and hopefully fish fight it off but always the chance of reacurance(sp)

      I would try treating with Polyguard. It is a broad spectrum and may send your tank into a mini-cycle so watch perams. link below.
