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 .

      The white areas look like either bacterial, or fungal infections to me.
      A general cure medication should help.
      What is the average temp of the tank?
      Most bacteria tend to become most virulent at temps above 82'F.
      JDs come from areas in Mexico where the average water temps are in the mid 70sF, and drop a bit during the rainy season, if your water temp is in the 80s, you may want to slowly drop it to mid to high 70s.
      The video below is of JD natural habitat, snorkeling there is comfortable, but it is by no means overly warm.

      I would suggest pimafix and melafix dosed together until the bumps are gone. Hard to know whether it is fungal or bacterial, so when I am in this situation, I just treat for both. The medicines are mild enough that they won't cause further problems.
