The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
Thanks 1077 - I agree regarding the low-light preference of fish and I do (now) have some floating plants, and surface overgrowing American Val. I also have a 36" light off-set, leaving a less bright area as a refuge if the fish prefer lower light. with my swords getting larger, the fish spend more time spread over the tank, but as you said, much time under/beween the plant leaves.
