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 .

      I noticed a few days ago my f/h stomach was starting to bulge, I figured she was just full of eggs, but I also noticed she's not pooping, I've had her for a few months with no issues until now, Is this bloat? I'm not going to feed her for a few days & see what happens, is their anything else that would help plz lmk?

      Hard to tell. Would hold food like ur doing. Acting normal? Can always add a little epsom salt 1tbsp per 5g. That way can see the poo.
