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.

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 have a marble mollie that is about a year old already and started swimming back wards in circles at the bottom of the tank. He has never done it before and no new fish have been introduced to the tank. I’ve looked into it and he shows symptoms discribing whirling disease. My first question is, is there a cure?
      Would the rest of my fish run risk of getting infected?

      I’d also need to add that I was observing him and he is missing an eye as well. What can be done or can someone tell me at least what is happening to him?

      Whirling disease can be due to an infection. Would dose with some prazipro and make sure ur water is pristine.
