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 just recently bought myself a silver arowanas and put him in my 105 gallon fish tank with a jack Dempsey and a few other fish. I've had arowana before but he passed away. Once I put my new one in everything seemed okay. When I went to check on him in the morning he was beatin up beyond beilife. All fins are shredded and broke. He's staying straight up and down but is still breathing but cannot swim. He seems to have a broken back. Agin. SERVERLY damaged. Is there anything I can do to save my fish?! Please help!

      Probably not, put him out of his misery or get him in a hospital tanks and hope for the best...
      Or a divider?
      What other fish exactly?
      How big are all the fish?
      How big was the aro?
      Aro really shouldn't be with anything even close to their size until they are over 8-9 inch and then nothing too aggressive.
      Btw silver aro need a 450g really.

      He's in hospital tank now, he is about 7-8 inches long. The other fish that were in his tank were a clown knife fish ( 12-14 in) jack Dempsey ( 5-6 in) tire track eel ( 5 in) albino channel cat ( 8 in).

      Looks past the point of recovery. If still breathing should put t down. Just my opinion.

      Still breathing. No progress and been 2 day. Thank you for your reply. I'll most likely be putting my aro down shortly.

      It's hard but the right decision.
      Likely the JD or clown knife...
      Clown knife also get 3ft long and huge!

      Sorry for your loss but don't put any new aro in that tank in future though because it's not big enough to keep aro in there and your established (current fishes) will beat up any new fishes you trying to put in that tank.
