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 went to check and it seems like shes getting better. Her slin has rehained its grey colour and the fin is losing the red. Just hoping that she recovers completely.

      "However none of them have the ability to do that( i think) "

      You've named quite a few fish that have the ability to cause damage. I would say ever single one you listed could be tje culprit...even the other sens

      Not however the damage caused because it all seems to be internal damage. As said before , no cuts nor scrapes can be seen. So unless one of my fish can do damage on the inside of a fish, i was right.

      Hello; This.

      Hello; This.

      Hello; Some suggested treatments in QT but not sure what your response is so far. Before any other suggestions it will be useful to know the steps you have taken. Not clear you have done anything at all yet.

      Hello; You can see the fish in person but these photos were not much help.

      Hello; This.

      Hello; OK, I guess you have it figured out.

      Good luck anyway.

      One of the other fish easily grabbed that fin, and pulled it. The other poly can do that with no problem. Hence the damage shown in the first picture, and the additional redness in the other pictures.

      Bingo !

      @Jaws22@Jaws22 polys grabbing fins is very common. Good luck with the fish.

      Thanks other jaws. The redness has now completely gone though the fin is looking a bit ragged around the edges and it still looks a bit off. Hoping that it heals over compltely soon.
