Lightbulb Question on medications

Hi,

I am wondering which medications are best? I just want to be on the safe side.

medications for what specific disease? I would say no medication is best if you can help it, clean water should come first and then maybe aquarium salt. After than if you have some kind of disease on your hands thats in need of medication, then you go for the medications. Some say to Stay away from bettafix and melafix and that they are poison. dose appropriately according to the label. dont mix meds. dont use meds longer than directed....the sticky on diseases on this forum has pretty good medication reccomendations

Thanks, aokashi. I think I'll get some aquarium salt. I just want to be prepared to fight disease if they ever get it.

oh in that case i believe maracyn i & ii is recommended to have on hand, aquarium and epsom salt and an effective anti parasite med, maybe even a broad spectrum med(which i have no idea what to recommend). these things are really costly though :P just try to give your fish a good clean warm and stable environment so that they wont get too sick

I don't have anything on hand other than aquarium salt and epsom salt... but the store is easy for me to get to in case of emergency. I've never had to use actual medications so I think they'd just expire and waste my money. XD
