Some good news and still asking for emergency kit help

Happy to report that Floyd has finally destressed and is happily swimming laps. Don't mean to be a pain, but gonna repost request for help with my emergency kit. I know there's lots of real emergencies out there but I'd sure appreciate the help. I live in nowhere NV so having an emergency kit is essential. Nearest likely place for supplies is 300+ miles away.

I've started an emergency kit and so far have the following:
Kordon Rid Ich +
API General Cure
API Triple Sulfa
API Fungus Cure liquid
Epson Salt
Aquarium Salt

Should I also include Eurythromycin, Maracyn 1 & 2, Tetracycline? Or am I already pretty well covered here?

Would also like to have Potassium Permanganate on hand and have found on the web a powdered form--one that says it's "98% PP", another that says 99.5%, one that says 100%, and a bunch that term themselves "Russian Antiseptic" whatever that means. So what do I want and what kind of dosing per gallon (so I know how much since it's not cheap)?

Want to do right by my guys and I need to have stuff on hand since everything must come mail order (I live in the middle of nowhere).

Im still pretty new to the whole what meds to have but I think you are on the right track. I would take a look at the disease and treatment sticky and look and see what meds you can overlap and use for mulitple issues if i remember correctly some packs of meds contain more than one use but i think right now it looks pretty decent.
