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 .

      Do they have hide spaces?

      It could be acclimation stress. The very bright gravel, new environment and all this could be freaking them out a little

      They've been in the tank for months now alone. I added the 3 jds about a month ago. All was fine until this week

      Did a 50 percent wc. No real difference. She comes up to eat then goes right back down to the corner. And about the ich question, it doesn't appear to be. I've dealt with ich before in other tanks.
      Water parameters are a ph of 7.5. Ammonia nitrate and nitrite all at 0

      It's mainly the one fish so I wasn't too worried about the water. Altho I'm not sure what could be bothering her
