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 .

      Does it look like there are red threads coming from the anus? If so, Could be callamanus worms. Could you post some pics of the fish, so others with more experience could chime in.

      Hmmm, a wound for this long shouldn't keep bleeding like that. Wounds generaly stop bleeindg within the day. This might be contiually caused by an internal parasite. You could treat the tank with API General Cure or just Hikari PraziPro. If those do not help in a week, the next thing would be treating for round worms with levamisole.

      You might also want to consider treating for a secondary bacterial infection afterwards with kanaplex.
