What to keep on hand?

I know I saw this somewhere not long ago, but I can not find it.

What things do you recommend to keep on hand in the event of a sick fish? I have Aquarium and Epsom Salt, but I know there were a few other things that were recommended to have. They always seem to get sick at inopportune time (like when the store is closed). What else should I have?

I have fungal medicines and internal parasite medicine. Those are the 2 I have had before and they seem to be pretty common diseases. I have Kordon's RId Ich Plus for fungal and Pimafix for internal. Pimafix is pretty strong though....

Pimafix is very bad to labyrinth fish.. It has an ingredient called "tea tree oil" that coats the labyrinth enabling the betta to get air. (Any med that has -fix has the TTO) It just suffocates them.. There have been few successes, but most led the fish to disaster. /: Sorry, I just don't want any members' fish to get worse... Besides ES and AS, I recommend: Maracyn, Maracyn 2, General Cure, Coppersafe, API Triple Sulfa, and API Erythromycin, API Stress Coat..

I think there's more but I'm not sure..
