Medications?

I want to be prepared for my guys so if any outbreaks appear I'll be ready on hand! What are the best kinds of medications you guys prefer? I've heard Kanaplex is really good but what else?

Epsom salt - good for treating internal issues (fluid retention, constipation, bloating, buoyancy problems, etc). Look for 100% magnesium sulfate. (No dyes, perfumes or additives.) Inexpensive and available at pharmacies and supermarkets.

Aquarium salt - good for treating external issues (fin rot, etc). Available at pet stores.

If you opt to have antibiotics or other medications on hand, keep an eye on expiration dates.
