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 .

      hi all... just did a reg water change... well water, softened = no chlorine, ph 7.2

      Just the giant cat is sloughing slime... rest are cichlids, plecos, clown loaches and redline barbs.

      Any thoughts?

      Thanksgiving here in Canada today so I cant get more water conditioner and mine has turned a weird orange colour so I’m not adding it.

      Thanks all.

      Something in your water is irritating it. If it didn't do that before when you put water conditioner in, then that's what you need to do.

      Thanks Rocksor. I haven’t used conditioner in years since we moved to well water... probably why the conditioner has turned colour.

      I’ll pick some up today, tho, and see if that makes a difference.

      I appreciate the reply!
