Question Where do you buy your medicines?

like epsom salt, maracyns I & II, API's, etc?

As of right now, I only own Aquarium salt for treatment... I want to have a stock of medicines to be prepared if anything happens to my current betta and I'm also looking to rescue a betta soon, considering I have the space. I'd like some good medicine recommendations and where you buy them, it'd be highly appreciated. Thank you!

Epsom Salt is like in CVS. Maracyn I & II should be in Petsmart or Petco. API Stress Coat is in Petsmart or Petco.

I just posted a thread on this not too long ago, "What to stock up on for emergencies" and I found that Maracyn, and Furan are the top two, and Kanaplex, but for now the Aquarium Salt, and Epsom salt are the best and work for most illnessess, and also I ordered some IAL from e-bay, because I know that is what OFL is always recommending to forum members who have sick fishy's>

Aquarium salt and Stess coat is at Petco/Petsmart, and Epsom is at any supermarket, or drug store..Others are harder to find, depending on your particular pet store, but I have ordered most online..Amazon.com or Dr's Fosters-Smith

Mostly eBay and various online aquarium shops for me. Fish medications are simply impossible to find where I live. I substitute kosher salt for aquarium salt, and buy epsom salt at the pharmacy.

Now I can find the API stuff at a local pet shop but when I was in Alaska, either ebay or amazon.com, whichever was cheaper
