List of best betta meds

Anyone have a list of the best betta medications they have found?
Or some that they always have on hand?

I always either treat with Aquarium Salt or Epsom salt first. Epsom salt can be found at local pharmacies or wal-mart, it's magnesium sulfate, not additives and needs to be unscented.

But those are pretty much the only things I've never really needed. I did have melafix and pimafix on hand until I found out that they could suffocate my Betta's because the tea tree oils can coat the labyrinth organ >.<

But yeah, AQ Salt, Epsom salt and General Cure are pretty good. I know Kanaplex has had good reviews and Paraguard :)

I've had success with Jungle's Fungus Cure; it's good for a few different things (fixed my delta tail's septicemia and persistent fin rot, but only in a slightly concentrated dose). Don't know about the other stuff it claims to treat, though. It says it fixes dropsy, but everything else I've read says there's no cure. But for anything mild that isn't fixed by AQ or Epsom salt, Fungus Cure is easy to find and works pretty well
