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 .

      it does look like it is eroding. Has the ammonia gone back down? I would start with salt and stress coat. If that does not work then go with daily treatments of bio bandage or dilute betadine

      @Charney@Charney thanks for the advice. I just got back from my trip. Fins still look very similar to before. The one damaged one had some "pink" that made it look raw which is now gone though so I think that is a move in the right direction. Will do a large water change and then add some salt and stress coat. I take it I just add stress coat after water changes?

      You recommend those treatments over a MB bath? Ammonia looks like its back to 0.

      if parameters are back to normal. I would start with salt and the stress coat. If not improving or gets worse I would do the MB or topical treatments.
