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 .

      Not sure but a good sign is it has been a year and not effecting it. That's a plus. As long as it's acting normal just enjoy the fish. Hope some other members will reply soon.

      it is hard to say. I agree with the sentiment if it is not bothering the severum and really not changing then let it be. I imagine it might be a scar at this point. At this point I would really consider just letting it be. If you really want to, you can pull him out of the water and try to scrub it a dry cotton ball in hope to roughen up the skin a little bit. Follow this with apply dilute betadine once daily for 14 days or so. This might encourage it to heal in. That being said the stress you are going to put him through probably isn't worth it. The third option is to take him to an aquatic vet. This ways skin scrapes, cultures and even biopsy can be done if needed.

      according to me it is not HITH .. because there is no irregular margins .. there is no skin peel or rusty discolouration which occurs or there is no sloughing .. as far as the fish is active and feeding well there won't be much of a problem .. I would treat it as a BIRTH MARK
