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.

      Hello MFK!

      my wolffish developed a white spot on the outer lens of its eyes a while back and I assumed it would have gone away through water changes. Its been some time (6 months) and its eyes has not cleared up. I've tried paraguard, Melafix, Pimafix, and salt. but nothing seems to clear it up. The wolf is the only one with the white spot on its eyes, and my other two fish are perfectly fine (Ace F barracuda and Striped pike characin).

      here are the specs of the tank they're in

      55 gallon aquarium
      10 gallon K1 Moving bed sump.
      80f degree water.
      70% water change every week with Seachem Safe.

      Anyone have any recommendations? my buddies said it could be from smashing against stuff in the tank but all thats in there is a hydor water jet up top, two heaters, and a somewhat large sponge filter for extra mechanical filtration.

      Recommendations please! The wolf eats just fine and like a pig, but i wouldent want it to go blind in the future if the spot gets larger.

      That’s a good sized erythrinus wolf. Not sure about trauma being the cause but there’s a concern for cataracts or low pH. What’s ur pH? Is it stable?

      not sure about my PH, i dont really adjust anything with the water, i just kinda fill it up with tap water and seachem safe. for the most part im sure its pretty stable unless theres issues with my local water fluctuating. and thanks! its like...10.5in or so. and its still fat hah.. 34829409_10155617201816033_2903405915094908928_n.jpg
